Hospitality body welcomes turbine decision


A leading tourism industry body on the Island says it is relieved plans for a huge windfarm off the Welsh coast have been scrapped.

Last week, Centrica and Dong Energy said they were dropping proposals to put 440 turbines in the sea between the Isle of Man and the UK.

Now, the Manx Hospitality Partnership has welcomed the news after worries the plans would restrict ferry travel.

Chairman Theo Fleurbaay says it is good news for Manx tourism.
