Radar problem blocks turbines  

Plans to install a wind farm near Newcastle Airport have been thwarted on the basis they could disrupt radars.

An application by Merck Sharp and Dohme Ltd to build the turbines was refused by members at Blyth Valley Council’s development control panel.

Members argued the plan, which proposed two 130m high turbines to be placed in Windmill Industrial Estate, Shotton Lane, Cramlington, would be misread on airport radars as aircraft.

Concerns were also raised about the effect on Brizlee Wood air defence radar where, if granted permission, the turbines would have been placed 36km from.
