RISE protest held at Donald Trump's Menie golf course

Police have attended Donald Trump's Aberdeenshire golf resort after members of a left-wing campaign group staged a protest.

RISE Scotland said Mr Trump - who has called for Muslims to be temporarily stopped from entering the US - is damaging Scotland's international reputation.

Officers were called to the Menie Estate at about 15:15.

Police Scotland said there was no criminality involved in the protest.

The actions comes the day before a Westminster debate on whether Mr Trump should be banned from the UK.

RISE Scotland said it was also targeting Mr Trump's Turnberry hotel and golf course in Ayrshire.

A spokesperson added: "Donald Trump needs to know that he is not welcome in Scotland."

The RISE Scotland alliance plan to contest regional list seats in May's Scottish Parliament election.
