... while Duke lashes turbines as "ugly and noisy"

AFTER years of private protest against wind farm encroachment, the Duke of Northumberland has finally gone public about his dislike of turbines.

Responding to a letter sent to a regional newspaper, the owner of Alnwick Castle described them as "ugly, noisy and completely out of place in our beautiful, historic landscape".
