Thousands of people have taken to the streets of UK cities today to protest against Donald Trump’s immigration ban.
Demonstrators were out in force in London, Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, Birmingham and Cardiff waving banners and placards in response to The President’s executive order preventing citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries entering the US for 90 days.
In London, thousands of activists gathered opposite the gates of Downing Street, turning Whitehall into a sea of posters and signs.
Among the list of high-profile celebrities to appear were pop star Lily Allen and human rights activist Bianca Jagger, while outspoken Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker was also spotted at the London event with sons Harry and George.
Crowds of people dominated city centres all over the UK, with riot police brought in to keep order in London and ensure they did not boil over into violence.
But despite the protests, Prime Minister Theresa May made clear President Trump’s invitation for a state visit would not be revoked and reiterated her dedication to the ‘special relationship’
