The Culture Secretary has agreed to "review" plans for a wind farm off the Dorset coast after the issue was raised in parliament.

A local MP claimed Jurassic Coast could lose its status as a Unesco World Heritage Site if The Navitus Bay scheme to build 194 turbines go ahead.

But backers of the plans say they would create more jobs and help local businesses.

Developers also claim that the bay would generate enough power for up to 700,000 homes.
