Amazing moment trees on hillside slide down slope after peat slippage on windfarm in Northern Ireland

This is the startling moment an entire landscape moves from one side of a hill to another during a peat slippage in Northern Ireland.

The unsettling incident was witnessed by a surprised passerby and caught on camera, as a number of mature trees rapidly glided down a slope at Meenbog Wind Farm, just south of Ballybofey, on Friday afternoon, according to Buzz.

While there were no reports of injury or concerns that the local water supply could be affected, one councillor said ‘there are serious questions about how this happened.’

Councillor Gary Doherty of Donegal County Council said: ‘I’ve this morning requested an immediate stop on all works at the site until a full investigation is carried out and the full extent of the damage caused is known.’

Authorities including Donegal County Council and The Loughs Agency have launched an investigation into how the incident occurred and the extent of the damage caused.
