Protests are planned across the UK during Donald Trump's state visit - but one art student from Hertfordshire has found an imaginative way of getting his message across first.
Ollie Nancarrow, from Bishop's Stortford, has mowed a rather rude welcome to the US President into a field on the flight path into Stansted Airport.
One message featured an outline of a polar bear alongside the words: "Climate change is real".
The 18-year-old said that "living under the flightpath has to have some advantages".
"I wanted to show Trump that I oppose his views and policies on climate change and, as an artist, I use whatever canvas I have."
Trump will be hosted by the Queen at Buckingham Palace and take part in the D-Day anniversary commemorations during his three-day visit.
Student Ollie, who is part of the sustainability and environmental awareness group "Born Eco", won't get to take part in any other Trump protests until later as he's tied up taking an A-level exam.
Air Force One is expected to touch down at Stansted Airport this morning.Read the full story ›

Essex police officers were called to Canvey, Basildon on Sunday regarding an incident involving a stolen motorbike. They were threatened with a hammer and some of them had petrol thrown in their faces.
The force said they did not anticipate any "long-term harm" for those affected.
"To be assaulted while simply doing our jobs - helping to keep our county safe and dealing with criminal and violent behaviour - is completely unacceptable under any circumstance."
