Spanish wind farms' record month


The fictional Don Quixote fought windmills in Castilla-La Mancha - but in March they were one of the main sources of Spain's electricity.

Wind power usually supplies around 12% of Spain's power, but fierce winds in the area during March helped the farms generate up to 40% of supplies.

Steve Kingstone reports from Castilla La Mancha.
