Northern Powergrid warns of helicopter fly-overs
9:00am Thursday 21st March 2013 in News
Helicopters will be low-level flying over Yorkshire from Monday as Northern Powergrid inspects overhead lines checking for any damage or deterioration.
Over four weeks, 3,000 kilometres of power lines in the north of England will be checked, along with 15,000 support structures.
Northern Powergrid uses helicopters regularly to check the overhead electricity network and landowners and farmers are being urged to be aware of the inspections due to the potential impact on livestock in fields where the overhead lines cross.
