B&B owner loses livelihood after power cut by Hurricane Arwen cost him £1,500
One bed and breakfast owner from Bell Busk in the Yorkshire Dales described how Storm Arwen has “taken away her livelihood” after losing £1,500 in revenue due to a power outage this week.
Winds of 100 mph hit the UK last Friday. Nearly a week on, 19,500 homes are still without power due to massive damage.
Rob Marchant told the PA news agency he had to cancel all scheduled guests after he lost power at The Old Station Bed and Breakfast on Friday night.
Mr Marchant said: “I had to cancel all of my business, which cost us £1,500 in revenue.
“I was frustrated (and) I became poorer because it took a week and a half, and my livelihood was gone.
“You wouldn’t want to go to a bed and breakfast with no heat, no light, no hot water, no food.”
Mr. Marchant’s power was finally turned back on around 1pm on Thursday.
