Route of giant electricity pylons

The long-awaited route has been published today for a series of giant electricity pylons across Somerset. It comes after a series of high profile campaigns by protestors who'd argued they'll ruin the countryside.

National Grid wants to run cables from near Bridgwater to Avonmouth. It's announced one section will be buried underground. While that's been welcomed by some, others say their fight continues.
