Dear Mr Bradshaw

These wind turbine accident statistics make very disconcerting reading, which is compounded further by the secret service attitude of the HSE. I believe the HSE is failing in its duty of care in relation to investigating wind turbine accidents and reporting them into the public domain. By the way, have you read the two HSE reports on the two collapsed WT in the SW? If not, why not?

As you are aware, the HSE has placed a lifetime email ban against me for reporting H&S issues.

Would you be so kind as to submit a FOIA request to the HSE asking how much it cost the HSE to investigate the two crippled WT in the SW and the cost of the two reports?

For your information action and files.

Yours sincerely
