Fire crew called out to deal with ‘precarious’ structure on a roof in the town.

A teetering Ilfracombe wind turbine had to be made safe by fire crews this morning (Sunday).

The fire service was called out just after 9.30am because a small turbine on a roof at Hostle Park Gardens was ‘in a precarious position’.

The crew used small tools and a saw to dismantle and tie down the structure.
