More talks needed over wind farms 

The MP for Blackpool North and Fleetwood, Joan Humble, has urged the government to consult fishermen about plans to build offshore wind farms.

Proposals for 90 turbines off the coast between Blackpool and Cleveleys are currently being discussed.

Joan Humble told the Commons the needs of fisherman and the impact it will have on them must be considered.

The Trade and Industry Secretary, Alistair Darling, says if people want wind-farms they need to go somewhere.

The turbines will be connected to the National Grid and help contribute to government targets on renewable energy.

It would mean one of the world’s biggest wind farms being clearly visible from the Fylde Coast.

But Mr Darling said: “We do need more renewable energy and it is all very well to agree with that but then to come along and say ‘not in my backyard’ – we can’t proceed on that basis.”
