Rohan Beyts loses Trump course urination privacy case

Media captionRohan Beyts says she wanted to clear her name
A woman who claimed damages after a worker photographed her urinating at an Aberdeenshire golf course founded by Donald Trump has lost her case.
Rohan Beyts sought £3,000 in damages from Trump International, saying staff breached data protection laws.
A staff member said he photographed her for evidence of a "criminal act" and the firm contested her claims.
The sheriff ruled that distress was not caused by the company's failure to register under the Data Protection Act.
But Sheriff Donald Corke, sitting in Edinburgh, added that Ms Beyts "should not have been photographed".
He described the criminal case against her as "frivolous" and warned that people "taking pictures of females urinating in the countryside put themselves at real risk of prosecution under public order or voyeurism".

Ms Beyts, a long-term campaigner against the course, previously told a small claims hearing at Edinburgh Sheriff Court she suffered from bladder problems and was caught short on a walk through the course on 11 April 2016.
She added she was "shocked" to be told by police she had been filmed, leaving her "slightly paranoid" about urinating outside.
Her lawyer Mike Dailly said photographs of her urinating had been "captured unlawfully" by course staff as it was not registered under the Data Protection Act.
He said her evidence showed she was clearly distressed.
Donald Trump ran Trump International before he became US president.
