Sixty Million Pound Police Cordon yet the man got through

"We don't know whether it was a protester or not," said E.On spokesman Jonathan Smith.

"But they gained access to the site, tampered with a pretty specific board and managed to turn off unit two.

"It is completely unacceptable. If you ignore the fact they have broken into our site, what they were doing was potentially dangerous, potentially deadly even. You can't just turn things off! People might die! Our profits might fall! In fact, f*ck off home and turn every electrical appliance on. Go on, f*cking do one! And leave the lights on all night too, you c*nts!"

Who knew the Off switch was so deadly?

Turning a Turbine off is potentially deadly?

What specialist knowledge , the ability to read OFF and ON?

Throw the full weight of the anti-terrorist act against the Perps, they're TERRORISTS!!!!

FFS E-On, use better locks on the panel doors. No wait, getting better Chubbs might be reflected in my next leccy bill :roll:

Or perhaps the great unwashed camped on the outside of the power station all chipped in a fiver and paid someone, already in the employ of E.On, to do their dirty work for them.

It does surprise me, however, that something as massive and complex as a steam turbine has an on/off switch. I thought it would be far more complex. I need to press more buttons than that to get my telly to switch off.

Are we to believe that it's that simple a man off the street could walk in to a (presumably) high security area manned by other staff who only work with each other day in day out find the appropriate panel and be greated by a big on and off switch?

If it was a tale from Ultimate Farce we would be pissing our selves at Henno

PTP, from my previous experience of coal fired powerstations turning off the steam supply to the turbine could be deadly. If pressure increased as steam was not going through the turbine then you could have a leak of superheated steam - about 600 degrees. Really quite nasty
