Petition at Donald Trump golf plan
A petition calling for a public inquiry into the handling of Donald Trump's controversial golf project on the North Sea coast has attracted more than 11,000 signatures, exceeding organisers' expectations.
David Milne, an opponent of the scheme at Menie, north of Aberdeen, said he had hoped for 2,000 signatures.
The petition is being lodged at the Scottish Parliament two weeks earlier than planned.
Mr Milne said: "There's clearly a growing appetite to get to the bottom of this fiasco and to make sure no other community anywhere in Scotland ever has to face down the combination of a developer and officials determined to see them get their way."
