Tens of thousands of people filled London’s central Trafalgar Square on Tuesday to protest the state visit to the UK by US President Donald Trump, Anadolu Agency reports.
The groups have gathered from the early hours before the president was due a visit to Prime Minister Theresa May at Dawning Street.
Trump arrived at the government offices under heavy police presence as protesters were kept well away from his convoy.
Thousands of protesters carrying anti-Trump banners, placards, and posters, later on, walked on to the entrance of 10 Downing Street, however, they failed to reach it due to a strict police cordon around it.
The entrance to Whitehall was closed by police vans, horses and metal barriers as more people also gathered in Parliament Square.
A 20-foot baby Trump blimp was inflated and floated in the square in a location where Trump’s armored vehicle had to pass to arrive for the meeting with May.
