Network controlled UK power socket (to remotely turn on and off devices)

We have a situation where we need to restart a router remotely. We have an alternative network available in the environment

Does anyone know if there is a method to have a UK power supply controlled by the network. Basically we need to be able to login via another network to some power switch, and then restart the power plug that is connected to first router.

So does anyone know if there exists a remote network enabled plug socket. We are based in the UK I will add.
Thanks in advance.
