Lime Down Solar Park - BBC News Filming

Lime Down Solar Park

Today we had a camera operator / drone pilot filming for BBC News in the West.

Almost 8,000 people have signed a petition against a large solar farm following plans for a development covering 2,000 acres (810 hectares) in Wiltshire.

Lime Down Solar Park is designed to create 500MW of clean energy - said to be enough to power 115,000 homes - from six sites in villages in the county. The government will respond to the petition if it reaches 10,000 names. Developer Island Green Power says it will give a "net gain in biodiversity".

We captured an update on the story for BBC 'Points West' on the ground, in the air and with a pole mounted gimbal.
