Activists staged protests at two golf resorts owned by Donald Trump as MPs prepare to debate calls to ban him from the UK.

Rise Scotland said around 40 people demonstrated at the Trump International estate in Aberdeenshire and Turnberry in Ayrshire on Sunday afternoon.

Campaigners, pictured with a Dump Trump banner at the Turnberry resort, said the US presidential hopeful was not welcome in Scotland.

Rise, which describes itself as Scotland's Left Alliance, said it wanted to highlight opposition to the billionaire businessman ahead of a Commons debate on Monday.

Mr Trump provoked widespread anger after he demanded a block on Muslims entering the US.

More than 570,000 have signed a petition asking the UK Government to prevent Mr Trump visiting the country.

Police Scotland said they were called to Trump International Golf Links at around 3.15pm and protesters had left the site by 4pm.

Activists had also left the Turnberry resort before officers attended.

There were no arrests.
