Controversial Carmarthenshire wind farm approved

Local people have opposed plans to build a wind farm on the edge of the Brechfa Forest for years.

The UK Government has granted approval for the building of a controversial wind farm in Carmarthenshire.

The Brechfa Forest West Wind Farm will consist of 28 turbines up to 145 metres tall. It will have a capacity of between 56 and 84 megawatts.

Local people have opposed the RWE npower development, saying it will ruin the area's ecology and landscape.
