Sutton Bridge councillor Chris Brewis wants the wind farm subsidy axed from people’s energy bills so poor people have more cash to spend.

He told Sutton Bridge Parish Council: “Removing the portion of everyone’s energy bill which goes toward subsidising the wind farm industry would probably do more to reduce fuel and child poverty than any other single action could.

“Let wind energy survive on its own two ‘turbo towers’ without universal subsidy from those receiving utility bills.”
