  • The energy minister is to launch a review into the impact wind farms have onshore amid claims the countryside is being “concreted over” with substations and cable corridors built as supporting infrastructure.
  • The activists are urging energy companies and the National Grid to develop an “offshore ring main” where the wind farms come online at the coast rather than inland.
  • SPR, one of a number of energy companies building wind farms in the southern North Sea, was last night unavailable for comment.
