Have your say

A HIGH Court battle is under way to decide whether the sound created by wind turbines in Deeping St Nicholas is a nuisance.

Jane and Julian Davis have launched a £2.5million compensation bid against the landowners and wind farm operators, claiming the noise was so disturbing it forced them out of their home.

In court today, the Davis family were accused of becoming “unduly sensitive” by the defence, but their barrister Peter Harrison QC said the defendants were irked by Mrs Davis’s eagerness to speak publicly and she was being attacked for refusing to put up with the noise.

A site visit is due to be carried out tomorrow, while eight days have been set aside to hear evidence.

Witnesses will include Jane and Julian Davis, Nicholas Watts, Richard Tinsley, Coun Steve Williams and Delia Williams.
