Councillors in Dumfries and Galloway have approved one wind farm scheme in the region but rejected another.

They gave the green light, with strict conditions, to 15 turbines at Crossdykes Farm north west of Langholm.

However, a five-turbine project near Auldgirth was refused.

Force 9 Energy wanted to develop the site but planning officials said it would have a significant adverse impact on the surrounding landscape.
