Campaigners say they will fight proposals for a windfarm on a site near Grantham that's located just under two miles away from land on which another farm was recently rejected. It is just under six months since the development known as 'Temple Hill' was rejected - but now a different company has put forward even bigger plans for nearby Fulbeck Airfield. The firm argues the turbines will benefit the community financially, campaigners though say will fight again. Kate Hemingway reports:

North Yorkshire County Council is to invest £21 million in its Superfast North Yorkshire programme.
The aim is to bring high speed, high quality broadband connections to 95% of premises across the county.
This sum comes on top of the £34.5 million which has been invested in high quality connectivity in the county so far.
A deal worth £40 million has been secured to make ultra-fast broadband available in Leeds.
Up to 80,000 homes are set to benefit from speeds of 152Mb. The upgrade will begin in MIddleton, then roll out to other areas of the city after being agreed between internet providers and the city council.
I am delighted that we have secured this investment for the residents of Leeds. Access to high speed broadband is the cornerstone of a thriving local economy helping residents connect and businesses to grow.
