Villagers are stepping up their protest against proposals which could see wind turbines on farmland near Darlington.

Billingham-based Pure Renewable Energy is considering applying for permission to erect up to 11 turbines on land bordering Darlington and Stockton.

Resident of surrounding villages were gathering in Bishopton to distribute posters opposing the turbines.
