Protestors have condemned a plan that puts a small Mid Wales village at the centre of a hugely controversial scheme to connect wind farms to the National Grid.
Today National Grid said they wanted to build a new electricity substation at Cefn Coch, West of Welshpool, with a chain of pylons stretching from there into England.
But protest groups have attacked the proposal as a “travesty”.
Rob Osborne was at the village with over 300 protestors.
