U.S presidential candidate Donald Trump has begun the latest round in his legal battle against a Scottish offshore wind farm project.

The Republican billionaire, who owns a luxury golf resort in Scotland, wants five British Supreme Court justices to stop wind turbines being built off the Aberdeenshire coast.

Trump argues that the 11-turbine wind farm, approved by the Scottish government in 2013, will spoil the view for guests at his Menie golf resort, about 3.5 kilometers (2.2 miles) away. The 69-year-old businessman bought and developed the estate in 2006.

Trump's lawyers have already lost the case twice in Scottish courts.

The property mogul did not attend Thursday's hearing in London. The justices are not expected to make an immediate decision at the end of the one-day hearing.
