Decision expected on windfarm plan for Thornton moor

A decision is expected on a plan to build a windfarm on a West Yorkshire moor near the former home of the Bronte sisters.

Bradford councillors will vote on an application to install a 200ft (60m) high test mast on Thornton Moor, near Haworth.

Protesters claim the development could have an impact on tourism in the area.

The company behind the scheme said it would make a "positive, long-term difference to the area".

Jenny Hill reports.
