The powercuts which affected around 35,000 households following the storms in southern Sweden earlier in the week are to be investigated by The Energy Markets Inspectorate, which supervises the Swedish electricity, natural gas and district heating markets.

Swedish public service radio's Ekot reports that the Inspectorate will find out if the electricty company or companies in the area affected did all they could to prevent the power cut.

The investigation is the first to be carried out since a new law introduced on January 1st, strengthened consumers rights that no-one should be without electricty for more than 24 hours.
