Griff Rhys Jones wins battle to stop solar energy plant

6/18/2014

British funnyman Griff Rhys Jones is celebrating after winning a battle to stop the construction of a solar energy plant near his home. The actor/comedian fiercely opposed a proposal to open a huge industrial site in the idyllic countryside of Suffolk, England, close to his property, and the scheme has now stalled following a ruling from U.K. government planning officials. Planning inspector Elizabeth Ord says, "The harm that would result from the development would demonstrably outweigh the benefits." Jones adds, "It is not just a victory or failure of the countryside (sic), it is just a sensible decision. I am delighted."
