Sydney blackout affects thousands

Almost 50,000 homes have been affected by a blackout in Sydney and parts of NSW

The outage happened just after 1pm on Saturday, with Ausgrid emergency crews able to restore electricity to the 45,000 homes by 3pm.

"Everyone is back on. As of 3pm all power has been restored," an Ausgrid spokesman told AAP.

A system failure between northern NSW and Queensland caused the blackout, the spokesman said.

Sydney's inner west was hit hardest, with about 23,000 homes left without power, while parts of the NSW Hunter region and Central Coast were also affected.
