An inflatable "Trump baby" blimp measuring approximately six meters in height has been given the green light to fly over London during President Donald Trump's visit.

The angry infant will take to the skies on July 13th with the support of London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

"The Mayor supports the right to peaceful protest and understands that this can take many different forms," a spokesperson said. "His city operations team have met with the organisers and have given them permission to use Parliament Square Garden as a grounding point for the blimp."

A spokesperson for the art activists behind the blimp told press: “We are just a small group of friends who set out to show that fascists are not welcome in the UK."

"We have been genuinely overwhelmed and touched by the incredible levels of support we have received for our project," she added.

The London police retain veto power over the baby's flight but are expected to allow the protest art to go forward without incident.
