A large wind turbine is reported to have collapsed between Fintona and Fivemiletown on Friday night.
The turbine is understood to the part of the Screggagh wind farm in the Fivemiletown mountain range in Co Tyrone.
Local people living close by reported hearing the turbine produce increasingly loud noise throughout Friday, culminating in a huge bang heard right across the area.
One local person described the noise as ‘frightening at the end’, while another man compared the sound to a bomb exploding.
The wrecked remains of the turbine was visible on Saturday morning, with debris was spread across a wide area.
