UFO blamed for destruction of wind turbine

From the Telegraph

Locals in Lincolnshire reported seeing mysterious glowing orbs in the evening sky shortly before the giant structure was wrecked.

More mundane theories for the cause of the damage – from a block of frozen urine dropped by a passing plane, to simple mechanical failure – have been mooted, but none has yet proved conclusive.

“It sounds unbelievable but actually we don’t have any explanation at the moment,” said Dale Vince, founder of Ecotricity, the energy company which owns the wind farm at Conisholme near Louth.

At least half a dozen Lincolnshire residents reported seeing the orange-yellow spheres, which some witnesses claimed were trailing octopus-like “tentacles”.

Dorothy Willows, who lives a mile and a half from the farm, said she saw a “low-flying object skimming across the sky towards the turbines” on Sunday evening.

In the early hours of the following morning a 213 ft fibre glass turbine at the farm was left crippled, with locals reporting hearing a loud bang like thunder. One of the £1 million turbine’s 65 ft blades was ripped off clean off and thrown to the ground, while another was severely damaged.

Although no foreign debris was found at the site, rumours of a possible alien collision quickly spread among local residents. RAF Scampton, the nearby base that hosts the Red Arrows display team, said it had no planes flying that night.

Robert Palmer, chairman of East Lindsey District Council and one of those who claimed to have seen the lights, said that he was keeping an open mind.
