NATIONAL park planners have hit back at proposals for a cross-channel power link amid fears of the 'massive' effect it could have on the view enjoyed by their visitors.

Bosses at the South Downs say the Aquind Interconnector could have 'large-scale negative effects' on them, despite being pencilled for land 200m away from their boundary to the west of an existing National Grid substation.

The project would see cables laid to transfer power form Normandy to a UK converter station at Lovedean, in a bid to strengthen both nations' electric grids.
