Donald Trump says he is pressing ahead with plans for his controversial £1bn golf resort near Aberdeen, for which he recently received outline planning permission. The US developer also announced a local development team to work alongside Hawtree, the British golf course designers, and said he would refurbish the 14th century Menie House to become his family residence in Scotland.

The coastal golf resort will include two championship courses, a five-star hotel with 450 bedrooms, a golf academy, 950 holiday homes, 500 private family homes and 36 luxury golf villas.
