Power fails in Toronto in middle of summer heat wave

Millions were temporarily left without electricity during a summer heat wave as the Queen of England and Duke of Edinburgh were touring the Canadian city on an ill-timed visit.
Power was restored to much of the city by the early evening, but over 48,000 customers were reportedly still without electricity.
