ABSTRACT
The article presents news briefs on the government's decision to reject plans for a wind farm near the Lake District National Park, published in various newspapers in Great Britain. The Guardian suggested the ministers' decision was likely to cause a rethink of the development of wind power in remote, windy parts of the country. The Financial Times claimed that the turbine project had thrown the government's long-standing commitment to renewable energy into doubt.
