Government to receive mixed response to windfarm

The Government will receive a mixed verdict to controversial plans to build the world's second largest off-shore windfarm along the North Devon coast.

Councillors in North Devon have rejected the proposal from RWE nPower and the Crown Estate to build 240 turbines at sea.

It comes after Devon County and Torridge District Councils raised no objections for the scheme that will power 900,000 homes.
