West Hinkley wind farm proposals have been backed by the Somerset public, according to a phone vote held by the Mercury and the Burnham and Higbridge Weekly News this week.
Hundreds of people rang the special voteline in support of the wind farm - recording a 58 per cent majority in favour of the wind project.
