All school turbines shut down amid fears for pupils
Highland Council ordered a shutdown of all wind turbines in its school playgrounds yesterday amid fears over children’s safety.
The decision to switch off the 16 devices was taken after a report from an independent consultant revealed that youngsters could be in danger.
The local authority insisted turning off the turbines was a temporary “precautionary measure” and that there was no “imminent” safety risk.
