A 6-metre tall inflated Donald Trump hovered over the streets of London

Protesters hoisted a balloon depicting Donald Trump as a baby above the streets of London.

The US president said he was avoiding London to keep out of the way of the demonstrations, and has also repeatedly attacked the UK capital's mayor.

"I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London," he told the Sun newspaper. "I used to love London as a city. I haven't been there in a long time. But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?"

The stunt's organisers donned red boiler suits bearing the words "TRUMP BABYSITTER."

The six-metre high, helium-filled balloon was inflated near to Britain's parliament and remained aloft for around two hours.
