Donald Trump arrives in UK for the Nato summit and to meet the Queen

Donald Trump has arrived in the UK for his third visit as US President.

The world leader will attend a Nato summit, meet Boris Johnson and the Queen during the whirlwind three-day stay.  

But NHS workers are planning a protest outside Buckingham Palace and Londoners have already complained about the thundering noise of US military helicopters flying over the city.

Trump has landed at Stansted Airport in Essex.

His visit comes as he faces a fight for his political life back at home and pressure from Prime Minister Boris Johnson not to meddle in the general election campaign.

The president and first lady Melania Trump will spend three days in London after Air Force One touches down at Stansted Airport in Essex at 9.45pm UK time on Monday.

From there, they will immediately board the Marine One helicopter and fly to Winfield House, the US ambassador's residence at Regent's Park, landing at 10.20pm.

Trump's first scheduled events will take place on Tuesday as the summit marks Nato's 70th anniversary in the city where it had its first headquarters.

The summit will conclude on Wednesday afternoon.

A ring of steel will be set up around Trump and the summit, with hundreds of police officers involved.

The overall cost of policing Trump's first visit to the UK, in July 2018, amounted to £14.2million.

It was estimated that his state visit in June this year would end up costing taxpayers an estimated £40million for security alone.
