Plans to build an onshore wind farm in Wales have been refused.

The decision by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) follows a six month examination process.

It stated the project would have a negative impact on the landscape and culture heritage of the region.

The Mynydd y Gwynt Wind Farm was planned to be located east of Aberystwyth.

It would have consisted of 27 turbines with a total capacity up to 89MW.

The UK Government will scrap subsidies for onshore wind projects from April 2016.
