Residents in one Northumberland village are opposing plans to build a wind farm nearby.
They are campaigning against a proposed scheme for five turbines to be installed, and have been told that they could just grow a 17 foot high hedge if they do not like the look of them.
Watch the full report from Gregg Easteal below.
A company called 'Energiekontor' wants to erect five 126 meter wind turbines on land next to the village of Fenrother, Northumberland.
The county council received 900 objections, more than any other planning application, and rejected the plans. Energiekontor are appealing this decision, and a public enquiry is underway at Morpeth Town Hall.
