About 1,400 people were left in the dark after a power cut in the city centre on Saturday night.
An underground cable fault shut off power to parts of Osney and Jericho at around 8.40pm. By 9.10pm power was back on for 977 people, and the problem was fixed for everyone by 10.05pm.
The main streets affected were Walton Street, Whitworth Place, Victor Street, Gloucester Green, Stable Close and Alexandra Road, and pubs including the Jericho Tavern were affected.
