Countryside campaigners have slammed a huge solar farm that is being built in the heart of Dorset for the exclusive benefit of the City of London.
Almost 100,000 solar panels are currently being installed on 75 acres of rolling countryside near the village of Spetisbury.
But the 50 megawatts of electricity - enough to power 15,000 homes - the farm will produce will not be for local residents wanting to become more environmentally friendly.
Instead the green energy will be channelled 120 miles to London's Square Mile where it will power office buildings such as the Gherkin and the Guildhall.
