Police have started an inquiry into the collapse of a 25-year-old wind turbine in Cumbria.
The machine – said to be one of the oldest in the county – came down between December 29-30 in high winds.
The turbine at Stobart Mill, Hesket Newmarket, is only capable of producing a small amount of electricity.
The Health and Safety Executive said it would not investigate the incident as no-one was hurt. Police and the turbine owners are looking into the collapse.
