Windturbine protest

Protesters have demonstrated outside a planning meeting this lunchtime in an attempt to protect the East Yorkshire coastline against wind turbines.

People living near the proposed site in Rudston say the plans for turbines more than a hundred feet high would damage the Flamborough heritage coast.

The campaign against the scheme is being backed by villagers from nearby Bempton, who successfully opposed similar plans earlier this year.
