It’s sounds like you may have a loose connection or a break in the cable somewhere, I would advise getting and electrician into look into your issue, depending how it is wired it may be a radial circuit meaning from the effected cable onwards you will loose power and use of the sockets, I may even be from a junction box and there is a connection that has come loose

There could be a number of reasons for this issue. We would recommend a call to an Electrician to inspect the wiring and find the issue. This could be caused by a loose or damaged cable, resulting in loss of power to the sockets supplied by the circuit; there could be a fuse/MCB or RCD/RCBO that has tripped and has caused the loss of power or a switch that controls the power for those sockets could have been turned off. We do not advise trying to inspect and check electrics if you are not trained and qualified to do so, as this can be very dangerous!

Depending how it’s been wired could be a MCB or rcbo tripped at board. If it’s a radial circuit could be a disconnected or broken connection at the previous socket or cable been damaged? Are those sockets fed from a fuse spur or switch fuse spur? Has it been turned off have you overloaded it and blown the 13A fuse? Have you had problems before on that particular circuit where it has tripped out multiple times before? If so it could be a damaged cable where it is has now blown conductor and the sockets after the damage are not getting electricity call an electrician. Have you had any building work or put up any pictures or other items recently?
