Wind farm grids 'not desirable'

A public consultation on plans for "a massive expansion" of wind farms in mid Wales ends today.

Environment analyst Roger Harrabin reports on the effect they may have on the countryside.

Clarification: The Welsh government says it supports increased wind power but has asked us to make clear that it also wants a top limit on the amount generated from mid Wales. In particular, it wants to keep large pylons out of the region.
