Wind turbine collapses on Bradworthy farm

Collapsed turbine Investigations are being carried out by the Bradworthy wind turbine's installer and manufacturer

A 35m (115ft) high wind turbine has collapsed in strong winds on a north Devon farm.

Engineers are investigating the collapse at East Ash Farm, near Holsworthy, said Dulas Ltd, which erected the turbine in 2010.

The Wales-based firm said it was "working hard to establish the precise cause of the incident".

Police said no-one had been reported injured after the turbine collapsed on Saturday night.

The farm's owners declined to comment.

Sanjay Bowry, chief executive of Dulas, said: "Our technical team is one of the most experienced in the UK.

"They are working alongside the turbine manufacturer to conduct a full... investigation."
