Multi-Million Cashback As Storms Knock Wind Off National Grid

Windfarm bosses are expecting a huge payout after Hurricane Katia proved too gusty for the National Grid to handle.

Thirteen windfarms had to be temporarily taken off the national grid on Saturday as high winds battered the country.

It was feared that the excess power they produced could blow the electrical grid in some parts of Scotland.

But windfarm owners are likely to be in gales of laughter as they await a huge compensation cheque that could give them a windfall running into the millions.
