Breaking News ! A spooky video has captured a "strange" fault that led to street lights repeatedly fading on and off throughout last night. In what seems to have been a widespread fault, people in parts of Bristol and further afield - including in Manchester and Wales - reported the "unsettling" slow-motion flashing for hours in the darkness. Several readers contacted Bristol Live about the issue in the early hours of this morning (Wednesday, January 1) and there were also numerous reports from elsewhere on social media. One reader shared the video above from a residential street in Bradley Stoke, describing the "strange happenings" from his window. Another man tweeted: "I don't know what's happening but all the street lights keep turning on and off for seemingly no reason. Not just my street. It's kinda unsettling." Another woman told us: "Street lights are going on and off all over Bristol and as far as other areas like Swindon and London (according to) Facebook posts. "Very strange, I just drove to get electric at a garage in Willsbridge and (it was happening) all the way there." One person tweeted just before 7am: "What's happening with all the street lights going on and off all over Bridgend and the Valleys please?" Another person in Wales reported on Twitter: "The street lights in our street and nearby streets are going on and off this morning. "Not flickering but going off for 5 to 10 seconds then coming back on. "Then another in the street goes off.

." A third report on the social media site asked: "Any reason why all street lights in Bristol main road are turning off and on." 'Disco lights' Bristol Live is seeking clarification from the councils about what caused the issue and when it will be fixed. However, in a tweet last night, the MancTraffic account reported a "large fault with a substation". The post read: "Street lights in Salford are flashing on and off due to a large fault with a substation. "Electricity North West are dealing. Put a bit of disco music on." Several Facebook residents' groups were also flooded with confused posts about the unusual sight, including in Kingswood People. One resident, reporting on the group, wrote: "I got it in Cadbury Heath as well so its not just Kingswood - god knows what it is." Others said they had seen the same in Hanham, Oldland Common, Warmley and Keynsham. Another commented: "That kept coming through my bedroom blinds all night long I wondered what it was."
