Police have been called to Donald Trump’s north-east estate 30 times since the businessman was given planning permission for his £750million golf development.

A vandalism campaign led by a small band of objectors has been blamed for the high number of Grampian Police visits to the site since November 2008 – the date when the Scottish Government approved the billionaire’s plans to build the world’s greatest golf course.

The call-outs include an incident in April when £50,000 worth of damage was done to the Menie Estate. Vehicles were broken into before wiring was cut and sand poured into their engines.
