These amazing pictures show the moment a huge wind turbine erupted in flames after it was struck by hurricane-force winds in Scotland.
Local photographer Stuart McMahon from Ardrossan, North Ayrshire, snapped the fireball as it wrecked the turbine earlier this afternoon.
Stuart told ClickGreen tonight the blades on the 100m-tall mast had been braked and were not turning as the ferocious winds swept across Scotland.
