A council-owned wind turbine has been taken down for a second time amid concerns about its safety.
The future of the turbine is now uncertain after the company which supplied it went in to administration.
Technicians took down the turbine at Yeovil Innovation Centre in Copse Road, Yeovil, Somerset, after manufacturer Proven Energy warned of a defect.
Three turbines of the same P35-2 type have suffered failures in high winds in recent months.
The turbine is owned by South Somerset District Council.
A spokeswoman said the council was very disappointed.
