A massive wind turbine has collapsed in Co Tyrone.
The large turbine came apart between Fintona and Fivemiletown on Friday night, according to the Ulster Herald.
It’s understood to the part of the Screggagh wind farm in the Fivemiletown mountain range.
A number of pictures have now circulated online, showing the huge turbine collapsed and destroyed.
Locals reported hearing the turbine produce increasingly loud noise throughout Friday, culminating in a huge bang.
One told the Ulster Herald the sound could be compared to a bomb exploding.
