Three blackout near-misses in three months, says National Grid

System operator under fire from industry for not doing enough to
prevent blackouts

National Grid had experienced three blackout “near-misses”
in as many months before Friday’s major outage left almost a
million homes in the dark and forced trains to a standstill around
the UK.

The system operator, already under investigation by the energy
watchdog, faces criticism from within the industry that it has not
done enough to guard against the risk of blackouts.
