Controversial plans for a 70 metre mast in Copmanthorpe have been thrown out.

A council committee has rejected the proposal by Banks Renewables by 8 votes to 1.

They said it's an inappropriate structure in the green belt.

The decision was loudly cheered this afternoon in the council chamber by more than a hundred campaigners and opponents of the scheme.

The firm says it'll examine the reasons for refusal, before deciding whether to appeal.
