A PARAGLIDER is said to be to blame for a series of powercuts in a pair of villages in Cadiz.

The daredevil caused the cuts in El Gastor and Algodonales after he allegedly landed on a power line while coming down to land.

“There were two short cuts of around ten minutes,” said local resident Pauline Olivera. “I was told that the first happened when his parachute hit the power line and the second when they released him without harm.”

A week earlier a French paraglider was rescued after he had a crash landing near El Gastor.
