In Pictures: Donald Trump’s state visit to the UK

US President Donald Trump has arrived in the UK for a state visit.

Accompanied by First Lady Melania, the American leader’s three-day visit will see him enjoy a state banquet, as well as paying tribute to allied servicemen who took part in D-Day on the 75th anniversary of the landings.

As well as all the pomp and pageantry of a state visit, Mr Trump can also expect mass protests on the streets of London and elsewhere.
