Public enquiry for wind turbine plans

Plans to build the biggest wind turbines in Cumbria will have to be debated at a public inquiry.

The Government has decided that the issue is so sensitive that the final decision can no longer rest with councillors in South Lakeland, who had originally approved the scheme.

If they finally go ahead the turbines would be built in a strip of land between two national parks.

Tim Backshall reports.
