GWPF have news of this report from the FT (unfortunately pay-walled):
The provisional report, which was submitted to regulators on Friday, suggests for the first time that the Hornsea offshore wind farm, which is owned and run by Denmark’s Orsted, may have tripped offline seconds before an outage at a smaller, gas-fired station.
The findings, which were relayed to the Financial Times by people briefed on the report, suggest the blackout may have been avoided if not for an error at the wind farm.
It would seem to confirm what some commenters here have suggested, that it was Hornsea which tripped first.
If anybody sees a fuller version in other newspapers, please let me know.
