Donald Trump will fly into Stansted Airport this afternoon (Thursday) on Air Force One.

The president will be joined by his wife Melania Trump and is expected to land in Uttlesford at 1pm.

He will hold meetings with Theresa May and meet the Queen whilst in the UK before heading to Scotland.

Reporter Katherine Heslop is at Stansted Airport with other UK media, awaiting the president’s arrival.

Police from as far afield as Norfolk, Suffolk and the Midlands have been called in and are stationed at the airport.

Although airport staff were unable to reveal Air Force One’s flight path, it is likely President Trump will be flying over Bishop’s Stortford and Sawbridgeworth on his path into the airport.

Protests in London are planned during the president’s visit.

The Dunmow Broadcast will be live streaming the president’s arrival on its Facebook page.
