An investigation's been launched to discover if a wind turbine which collapsed in Devon could have been sabotaged. It's thought bolts may have been removed from its base - as it emerged a second one has fallen nearby. The first tower came down last week in Bradworth amid gale force gusts of 50mph.
It was first thought heavy winds brought down the £250,000 turbine - which is deeply unpopular with local residents.
But officials believe it could have been the victim of anti-turbine protestors - after bolts were discovered missing from its base. Another 60ft wind tower has also fallen, 18 miles away at Winsdon Farm, in North Petherwin, Cornwall.
