Wind power plan divides Gwynedd village of Llanaelhaearn

Plans for a wind turbine in a Gwynedd village have divided the community with some people claiming they have been ostracised for opposing the scheme.

The application for a 67-metre (219 ft) wind turbine in Llanaelhaearn, near Pwllheli, is recommended for refusal by Gwynedd councillors on Monday.

Supporters claim the turbine could generate nearly £3m profit over twenty years for a poor community.

But council officers say it would be an "alien feature" harming the landscape.

Matthew Richards reports.
