Service has resumed on the L line through Ridgewood and much of Brooklyn after a nearly hour-long power disruption on Wednesday afternoon.

According to the MTA, police cut off electrical service to the line near the Montrose Avenue station in Bushwick at around 2:30 p.m. due to an unauthorized person on the tracks.

This led to service being suspended on the heavily used line between Lorimer Street and Broadway Junction.
