Trump wind farm objection dismissed by UK Supreme Court

The UK Supreme Court has dismissed Donald Trump's objection to a proposed offshore wind farm near his Menie Estate golf course in Aberdeenshire.

Judgement in the case of Trump International Golf Club Scotland Ltd vs the Scottish government was read by Lord Hodge.

The US businessman began his challenge more than two years ago after the Scottish government approved plans for the renewable energy development within sight of his golf development, Trump International Golf Links, which opened at Menie in July 2012.

A statement issued by the Trump Orgnaisation said: "We will evaluate the court's decision and continue to fight this proposal on every possible front."
