The man who died at the Afton wind farm last weekend had been working as a security guard as the south-west Scotland project.

The 74-year-old has been named locally as Ronnie Alexander, who had been working for CSM Facilities at the under-construction site near New Cumnock in East Ayrshire.

Investigations into the incident by owner Afton Wind Farm, Police Scotland and the Health and Safety Executive are ongoing.

Alexander and a 42-year-old colleague were left without heat or light following a power cut during storms on 21 January, it is understood.

The older man was airlifted to hospital after being rescued but later passed away.
