Solar energy plan in Constable Country: Brooks Newmark

The government has announced plans this week to build a nuclear reactor, but some say the UK should also look at other forms of power, including renewable energy sources.

But Conservative MP Brooks Newmark is not happy with plans to cover 300 acres of 'Constable Country' in his part of Essex.

He will debate with Labour's Mary Creagh and Conservative Party chairman Grant Shapps on Wednesday's BBC Daily Politics around 12:40 BST when this film will be shown. The whole programme can be seen on iPlayer for seven days.
