Offshore wind farm plans on show  

Plans for a wind farm off the East Yorkshire coast are going on display to the public.

Dong Energy wants to put up to 78 turbines in the North Sea, five miles (8km) off Spurn Point.

Fishermen have spoken of concerns that the farm could pose a threat to their livelihoods if they cannot work in the area, known as Westermost Rough.

Dong has invited fishermen and residents to a series of meetings to view the plans next week.

They are from noon until 1900 BST at South Holderness Resource centre in Withernsea on Tuesday, Hornsea Floral Hall on Wednesday and at Bridlington Spa on Thursday.

Dong said the project could generate electricity for 150,000 homes.

In April, energy giant E.ON announced plans to build one of the UK’s biggest offshore wind farms near to Westermost Rough.

The Humber Gateway Offshore Wind Farm would consist of up to 83 turbines and generate enough electricity for up to 195,000 homes.
