D-Day Veterans Fight Against Offshore Wind Turbines (France)


VETERANS of the D-Day landings are campaigning to stop a huge offshore wind farm being built near the famous beaches.

Dozens of 450ft turbines would be sited fewer than 10 miles from the place where the landings took place exactly 67 years ago tomorrow.

David Churchcroft from north London, a former infantryman who stormed ashore on June 6, 1944, said: “It will change the entire seascape, destroying a view which evokes memories of the most astonishing invasion in military history.

“This is sacred ground and the French should not be allowed to alter its character.”
