Information from Audlem's local computer company, JMG Computing (The website link that was here no longer works) , has revealed that up-to 8 villagers had computer equipment rendered useless by yesterday's electrical storm, which caused a power surge through local telephone wiring.

It is worth remembering that even a surge protector will not protect you from telephone power surges unless you buy units that include the telephone surge loop. These can be purchased from most electrical shops.
