US president Donald Trump arrived in London on Thursday for a three-day visit to the UK. The pomp of a black-tie dinner was somewhat spoiled that evening by the publication of a controversial interview Mr Trump gave to the tabloid Sun, although the president rowed back on some of his comments the following day after a meeting with UK prime minister Theresa May at Chequers.

The visit was also marked by protests in London and in Scotland, where Mr Trump flew on Friday evening.
