Police have slammed thrill seekers who scaled a 400ft wind turbine in Ramsey before parachuting off.
The incident took place at about 7pm on Saturday (March 12), with adrenaline junkies using a crowbar to jemmy the door at the base of a wind turbine in St Mary’s Road.
They then accessed the roof hatch and jumped off the turbine while wearing parachutes, a pursuit known as base jumping.
There were no reports of any injuries in the incident.
A spokesman for Cambridgeshire police: “Not only has a criminal offence been committed by breaking into the wind turbine, but this act was extremely dangerous and could have ended horribly.
