Major electricity company EDF pulls out of bidding for the Hackney wind turbine because of doubts over wind reliability at the site

''EDF abandons 2012 Olympics turbine due to ‘lack of wind.''' This is what the London Evening Standard's Matthew Beard reported on 21 January this year, yet curiously, this detail is absent from the council's report on its consultation, completed just four days later on 25 January.

It's also missing from the BBC's report, published on 25 January.

There's no mention of the fact that a mainstream electricity supplier - London's largest - has taken itself out the bidding because the resource it needs to make money just isn't there.
