Wind farm developments should be accelerated with the help of state subsidies after a poll revealed two-thirds of rural Scots support them, campaigners say.

A Green MSP in Fife has called on the UK Government to re-introduce the cash support on the back of the survey, so more energy projects can go ahead.

The Survation study for Scottish Renewables found 66% of rural Scots support the use of onshore wind energy, while 11% are opposed to new farms.

WWF Scotland said the poll is “another nail in the coffin for the myth that renewables are unpopular”.
