Damage estimated at more than £50,000 has been caused by vandals at the site of US tycoon Donald Trump's planned £1bn golf resort.

Vehicles working at Menie in Aberdeenshire were damaged and marram grass and fencing was ripped out.

The Trump Organisation said the vandalism would have "no impact" on the progress of the venture.

Spokesperson Sarah Malone told the BBC Scotland news website it was now a matter for Grampian Police.

Mr Trump's controversial plans to create "the world's greatest golf course" have divided opinion for several years.
