Developers of one of the worlds largest offshore wind farms off the coast of North Devon are expected to pull out of the project tomorrow.

Sources close to energy company RWE Npower say the Atlantic Array scheme is financially unsustainable. It's not known if any other firm will take over the project.

The plans include more than two hundred turbines along nine miles of the North Devon Coast. It would have powered hundreds of thousands of homes in the region.
