CENTRE OF ATTENTION: One of the turbines in the Glens of Foudland windfarm which has been shut down pending an investigation into a bullock’s death.

The biggest windfarm in Aberdeenshire has been shut down for four days amid fears of electrocution after a farm animal was found dead.

All 20 turbines at Glens of Foudland, near Huntly, were switched off on Thursday after farmer John Wink found the bullock lying in a nearby field.

The cause of death has been described as unexplained but the previously healthy one-year-old showed haemorrhaging around the heart, a possible sign of electrocution.
