Beauty spot 'will be destroyed' by turbines
Cornwall's "twin peaks" could soon be surmounted by plans for a controversial wind farm partly on Forestry Commission land close to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The tips of the giant turbines could inch past the Duchy's highest point, Brown Willy, and its equally famous cousin Roughtor – the popular hills which crown the windswept wilderness of Bodmin Moor.
The scheme comes as plans emerged to place a floating turbine on top of the pioneering Wave Hub, ten miles off the Cornish coast.
Developers Community Windpower are set to announce fresh plans soon to build 16 turbines standing 426ft tall (130m) near Camelford.

At least one of the huge towers will climb 1,378ft (420m) above sea level, equalling or surpassing Brown Willy and 65ft taller than Roughtor.
Campaigners believe the scheme will "interrupt and destroy" the nationally important Iron Age and Bronze Age settlements.
They say the Forestry Commission is showing a "cavalier" attitude.
