A controversial bid to build a 67m-high wind turbine near the Menai Strait in Gwynedd has been refused by councillors.

The turbine on a field at Hendy farm, Llanfaglan, near Caernarfon, would have been twice the height of the Eagle Tower in Caernarfon Castle.

Members of Gwynedd plan ning committee decided to refuse the application by Awel Menai on the grounds that it would spoil the visual amenity of the area and its proximity to a World Heritage Site.

Awel Menai have said they will reduce the height of the £1.5m turbine and submit a second application.
