Bulgaria: 250,000 in London to Protest against Trump

Nearly 250,000 activists descended on the streets of central London today to protest Donald Trump's visit to the UK, organisers said. 

Protesters marched through the capital carrying placards reading "Dump Trump" and "Star Spangled Gobs***". 

Aerial images showed the streets of central London from Portland Place to Trafalgar Square packed with tens of thousands of people taking part. 


Stop Trump, the group which organised the biggest march, said that there were 250,000 people taking part.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn addressed crowds at a rally in Trafalgar Square and was received with enthusiasm.

"We are asserting our right to demonstrate, our right to free speech," he said.

Mr Corbyn said Sadiq Khan deserves support and not condemnation. "Human rights belong to all of us," he added.
