Protests in London as Trump meets May

From Morning Report, 7:20 am on 5 June 2019

The inflatable balloon depicting Donald Trump as a baby has been flown over Parliament Square in London again as part of demonstrations against the visiting US President.

On a rainy day, the protest in central London against Mr Trump appeared smaller in number than the massive rallies which marked his first visit to London last year.

However tens of thousands of people still took to the streets.

Mr Trump says the US and UK have the "greatest alliance the world has ever known" in a news conference following his meeting at Downing Street with British Prime Minister Theresa May.
