The Government today gave the go-ahead to a controversial wind farm at Middlemoor near Alnwick, Northumberland.

The 75MW onshore wind farm at Middlemoor - which was the subject of a public inquiry - will consist of 18 turbines, and will generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of 27,600 homes.

The plans have been subject to huge objections from residents. The approval is subject to finding technical solutions to the impact on radar at the local RAF base.

Full story in The Juornal tomorrow.
