Claims it will spoil the view from his luxury golf course

Donald Trump's legal challenge to an offshore windfarm project supported by the Scottish Government is getting under way.

The US businessman opposes the 11-turbine European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre off the Aberdeenshire coast, claiming it will spoil the view from his nearby luxury golf course.

Mr Trump has said he will pull the plug on his own controversial plans to finish his proposed resort with a large hotel, holiday homes and a residential village if the windfarm goes ahead.
