Artist turns ugly  

Renowned landscape artist Ashley Jackson has taken up his brushes to help the fight against windfarms in the Pennines.

The Holmefirth-based watercolourist has produced a new painting showing giant turbines on the hilltops and says it is the first time he has deliberately made his beloved moors look ugly.

The painting, Look What They’ve Done to My Moors, Ma, is a protest against the seemingly inexorable expansion of ever-taller turbines into the Yorkshire uplands.

He says wind power is too unreliable to make a significant contribution to fighting global warming and research should be channeled into other forms of renewable energy, such as tidal power, instead.
