Revised plans for a 24-turbine wind farm in Dumfries and Galloway have been recommended for refusal by planning officers.

The Scottish government previously rejected a 30-turbine bid at Sandy Knowe near Kirkconnel.

The revised project has received more than 100 letters of support and has two community councils' backing.

However, planning officers said it would still have a significant adverse impact on the area.

They have recommended councillors refuse the application.
