London: The National Grid of United Kingdom has ruled out cyber-attack in connection with the mass power outage on Friday, according to reports.
The reports said the British National Grid has said that it does not believe a cyber-attack was to blame for the Friday power cuts. Nearly one million people across England and Wales lost power, the reports said.
National Grid’s Director of Operations, Duncan Burt, told the media that he did not believe that a cyber-attack or unpredictable wind power generation were to blame.
An energy department spokesperson said National Grid must “urgently review” what happened and that it was awaiting its report.
