Celtic Array Rhiannon wind farm off Anglesey scrapped

A massive wind farm planned for the Irish Sea has been scrapped.

The Rhiannon wind farm, 12 miles (19km) north east of Anglesey, would have covered an area the size of the island.

Celtic Array, a partnership of Centrica and Danish firm Dong Energy, said the Irish Sea was "economically unviable".

Up to 440 turbines would have produced enough power to meet the needs of around 1.7m homes.
