Somerset wind farm application submitted

A planning application for four wind turbines near West Huntspill in Somerset has been submitted.

Energy company Ecotricity, based in Stroud, announced it had lodged plans for Black Ditch with Sedgemoor District Council earlier.

The company has changed the proposals from five turbines to four following a consultation.

Campaigners against the plans say the area of outstanding beauty should be protected from "man-made" objects.
