Since then, viewers in the south west have been receiving regional news from the Points West team from Bristol.
Last night, the Bristol team took over the main 6:30pm regional news slot with a joint programme with dual branding for both of the two BBC regions (pictured above). BBC Channel Islands, which usually opts midway into Spotlight also joined the joint programme from BBC Bristol.
BBC West weather presenter Alina Jenkins ensured viewers in the south west didn't miss out on their weather with an extended weather map covering the temporarily enlarged broadcast region.
Spotlight was unable to broadcast on Wednesday morning during BBC Breakfast, but hopes to be back on air at lunchtime.
The power cut also temporarily affected BBC Radio Devon on FM on Tuesday.
