RESIDENTS were last night warned that if they do not take a stand against proposals for two wind turbines "there will be 100 more in 12 months."

David Goss, of the Campaign for the Protection of Rural England (CPRE), made the prediction at a public meeting about the plans for the 95-metre-high machines at Uglow Farm, on the top of Broadhead Valley, Edgworth.

Mr Goss's comments were made in response to suggestions by a number of objectors that Blackburn with Darwen Council would bow to pressure from the government to meet targets for renewable energy sources.
