    BBC News Online reports that work to construct two windfarms off the south Cumbrian coast of the UK will begin in the summer.

    More than 100 turbines will make up the Walney Offshore Wind Farm, situated 9.3 miles (15km) west of Barrow-in-Furness.

    The Ormonde Offshore Wind Farm will have 30 turbines, located about 6.2 miles (10km) off at Walney Island.

    Danish company Dong Energy and SSE (Scottish and Southern Energy) are behind the Walney project, which will be built in two stages, each consisting of 51 turbines.

    The Ormonde Offshore Wind farm will be built and operated by Vattenfall, a Swedish energy company.
