Plans to build the biggest wind turbines in Cumbria have been dropped.

Banks Renewables wanted to put three turbines on land at Killington Lake near Kendal.

Each would have been the height of the viewing platform of Blackpool Tower. But the company says it's dropped the plans because it doesn't believe it can win a public inquiry, called by the government.
