Anti-wind farm campaigners in County Durham have presented a petition to MEP Stephen Hughes. They want the European Parliament to change renewable energy targets. Campaigners argue that targets should be regional and not national.
Members of The Isles Community Turbine Action Campaign, or 'TIC TAC' are against a 24-turbine wind development, close to Newton Aycliffe. The group says it is not a case of 'not in my back year' but that the area has done enough to support renewable energy.
The group gathered on the village green in Mordon to hand the petition over to Stephen Hughes MEP.
