Tens of thousands of demonstrators [This Writer heard it was 40,000 – way to go, London!] gathered outside the US embassy in Mayfair at 11am to hear speeches, before marching to 10 Downing Street.

Kevin Courtney, general secretary of the National Union of Teachers, told us he believed teachers had a duty to join the movement to oppose Trump.

Dawn Butler, the MP for Brent Central, told the crowds that Theresa May needed to “understand the responsibility” of the UK’s relationship with the US.

David Rosenberg, leader of the Jewish Socialist Group, said they were there “to express our complete solidarity with Muslims threatened and victimised by Trump”.

In a video message from Jeremy Corbyn, he said Theresa May was “on the wrong side of history”.
