Wind Turbines and Ben Bradshaw

Dear Mr Bradshaw

As you are aware, I have raised this question several times before and you have failed to acknowledge my concerns.

It is not a question of IF there are repeated collapses of wind turbines nationwide in a similar manner to the two collapsed WT's in the South West a couple of years ago, it is more a question of WHEN they will collapse.

You will recall the collapsed WT in Bradworthy was replaced using the same foundation anchor bolts and the Health and Safety Executive did not even visit the site. Such actions are not only willfully negligent, they beggar belief.

I fervently believe there is a wider conspiracy between local authorities nationwide and the HSE, who are both failing their fiduciary duty of care to check Risk Assessment and Method Statements ref the design and construction of wind turbines. I also believe there is tangible evidence that a very similar dangerous situation is apparent with the large motorway luminary columns and directional signs and stadium floodlights.

I call upon my MP to write to the Secretary of State in charge of the HSE and Minster of Transport seeking their assurance the highest safety standards are in place on this matter.

Thus far, there have been no serious injury or deaths due to collapsing WT but such miracles cannot continue and its only a matter of time before we witness a catastrophe.

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield
