Protest against turbines.

Anti-wind turbine protesters meet this evening to discuss plans for a Denby Dale site.

Yorkshire Euro-MP Godfrey Bloom, and David Brierley, who lives in the Lake District, will speak about living in the vicinity of wind farms.

The meeting at 7pm in Scissett Working Men's Club, Wakefield Road, Scissett has been called by the group Residents Against Windfarms, who say the structures will tower above the area.

Danish energy firm Alpha Wind has lodged the application after tests at the site.

Two turbines - each 410ft high - will be built at Pool Hill, Kitchenroyd if Kirklees Council gives the go-ahead.

Campaigner Audrey Booth, of Clayton West said: "Our job is to make sure everyone has the opportunity to make a decision for themselves about this application."

Wakefield MP Mary Creagh has said: "Although I support more use of renewable energy, it should not be at the cost of local residents' wellbeing.

" I believe the sheer size of the turbines and their closeness to people's homes makes them unsuitable for this location."
