Construction bungle causes mass power outage

A construction mishap at Southport has caused a massive power outage across parts of the Gold Coast.

More than 7600 homes around Southport and Labrador lost power around 11:13am, with some 353 still waiting for it to come back on.

Energex has confirmed the blackout was caused after some construction workers accidentally hit an underground power cable while working on Ferry Road.
