The answer isn't blowing in the wind  

The answer,” wrote Bob Dylan in his famous 60s protest song, “is blowing in the wind.” But for one 21st century singer, it’s the potential problem that’s blowing in the wind.

The teenager has penned a protest song against three huge wind turbines planned for a spot near the village of Benington.

Becky Godlee, 16, was moved to song after the Beane Valley skyline was earmarked for the 120 metre masts.

In her song Beauty Corruption she implores: “Put it on a motorway, where it can be forgiven”.

The video of Becky performing the song is on film-maker’s website www.youtube.com.

Last month the Herald reported that more than 200 protesters, joined by best-selling novelist and Hertford resident Frederick Forsyth, marched against the turbines.

At the time the Day of the Jackal author said: “If a national competition were held to find the most utterly unsuitable place for three gigantic eyesore windmills, over 400 feet high, the prize would have to go to the historic village of Benington in the ancient and dreamy Beane Valley.”

Becky said: “I wrote this as a protest song when a windfarm was proposed for my village. I am not against wind energy just put it in the right place!”
