Donald Trump has launched a fresh legal challenge to an offshore wind farm near his golf resort in Aberdeenshire.

The American billionaire wants a judicial review into his claim that Scottish ministers acted illegally by approving the 11 turbine scheme in Aberdeen Bay.

A previous application had been dismissed.

Mr Trump halted all new work at the Menie estate claiming the wind farm would spoil the view.

Judges at the Court of Session will give a decision on whether a fresh review can be held at a later date.
