The president of the United States arrived in London on Thursday for his first official visit to the United Kingdom, where he was expected to be met with large protests.

Air Force One, carrying Donald Trump and his wife Melania, touched down at Stansted airport, north of London, at 1.51 pm local time.

Trump's first stop in the UK would be Winfield House, the official residence of the US ambassador to the UK Woody Johnson.

He was expected to attend a dinner in the evening with Prime Minister Theresa May.
