The Swedish state-owned power company Vattenfall has been given the go-ahead by the British government to build the biggest onshore wind farm ever in England and Wales.

The £ 300 million (around US $ 400 million) Pen-y-Cymoedd project would generate power for 200,000 homes in south Wales.

The 76 wind turbines are to be built over the next three years, and are expected to be in operation for a quarter of a century.

But some local residents told BBC News they are against the project because it would ruin the unspoiled landscape.
