A Scottish schoolgirl has urged ministers to rein in the march of wind turbines amid concern that the government’s drive for onshore wind is “ruining the beautiful scenery”.

Jessica McCreadie, 15, is opposing plans by RES, a renewable energy firm, to build 13 turbines on Highlee Hill, a natural beauty spot in the Scottish Borders southeast of Hawick. The turbines, up to 176 metres high, would be visible from her parents’ farm. “I love being able to look at the horizon without a huge pole in my face,” she said.
