Shetland Island residents opposed to a large wind farm hope to raise £20,000 from public donations to help their cause.

They have launched a crowdfunding campaign to fund a Judicial Review into Scottish energy ministers’ decision to grant consent for the Viking Energy wind farm.

Opening for donations for two months on crowdfunder.co.uk, the group Sustainable Shetland has raised nearly £4,000 from 52 backers so far.
