UK Supreme Court rules against Trump over wind farm

LONDON: Britain's Supreme Court has ruled against Donald Trump in his battle to stop an offshore wind farm near his Scottish golf resort.

Trump says the 11-turbine project, approved by the Scottish government in 2013, will spoil the view from his golf course near Aberdeen in eastern Scotland.

Two Scottish courts have ruled against the contender for the US Republican presidential nomination, and on Wednesday a panel of Supreme Court judges unanimously dismissed Trump's appeal.

The decision comes amid a storm of criticism in Britain over Trump's comments about Muslims.

The Scottish government has revoked Trump's status as an unpaid business ambassador with its GlobalScot network, and Robert Gordon University revoked his honorary degree.

Trump's mother was born in Scotland.
