    Bucket loads in Portsmouth, but not sure that's much interest to you...

    If his visit is like previous ones there will be loads everywhere he visits. Previous visit by former US president shut land rover and all roads around Birmingham airport down due to a car that ran out of petrol. We had a military security detail on the factory roof as it overlooked the airport. Not very talkative and wasn't going to argue with them. Personally I'd sooner he didn't visit.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Eh? US Embassy recently moved to Vauxhall. From Mayfair.

    Loads of diversions anywhere near the houses of parliament and Whitehall, played havoc with my commute (my fault for not anticipating it tbf).

    Thousands of police to protect that giant cheesy wotsit from milkshakes. Sniffer dogs the lot. About 50 riot vans parked up by the Duke of York Column / Royal Academy.

    At the bottom of Horse Guards Road there were about 50 coppers just standing there behind the barriers blocking the road. I said to one of them that it was a bit of overkill and he just laughed. I noticed from this uniform that he had been drafted in from Wales to help police this visit.

    The Mall is festooned with Union Jacks and Stars and Stripes.

    Area cordoned off in the middle of Parliament Square, with a bunch of helium tanks already in place, ready to inflate the Trump Baby Blimp.

    I think he means the US Ambassador's mansion.

    Odd, the ospreys weren't part of his arrival
