President Trump met Prime Minister Theresa May for ‘substantial talks’ on day two of his state visit - as protesters demonstrated against him in central London.

Mr Trump had attended a breakfast meeting on Tuesday morning at St James’s Palace with Mrs May, before the pair, along with Philip May and First Lady Melania Trump, posed for the media at a lunchtime Downing Street photocall.

However, anti-Trump protesters once again inflated the infamous ‘Trump baby blimp’ on Parliament Square outside Westminster as he met the Prime Minister.

The 20ft orange inflatable took to the skies for two hours after its owners reached their fundraising target and permission was granted by the Greater London Authority.

Elsewhere, organisers of the Together Against Trump protest billed their demo as a “carnival of resistance”, with campaigners gathering at Trafalgar Square from 11am to declare a “Trump-free zone”.
