Wind turbine collapses as storms batter Northern Ireland #NIR

07:14 Feb 3 2017 Dromore BT25, UK

High winds and wintry weather lashed much of Northern Ireland yesterday. In the day's most dramatic incident, a giant wind turbine collapsed on a remote Co Down hillside. The massive structure, near the Begny Hill Road between Dromara and Ballynahinch, was photographed lying in pieces on the ground. The images also showed a large crane active on the site amid the wreckage. The Heath and Safety Executive is investigating the incident. It is not the first time a giant wind . . .
