Donald Trump has arrived in the UK for a meeting of the defence alliance Nato.

The US president’s plane, Air Force One, landed at Stansted airport ahead of the three-day visit.

Mr Trump is set to attend a reception for world leaders hosted by the Queen at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday. The summit marking the 70th anniversary of Nato starts in Watford on Wednesday.

His last UK two visits attracted protests and more demonstrations are expected during this stay.

Scotland Yard has said road closures will be in place in central London during the Nato summit.
