Embassy warns Americans to keep a 'low profile' during Trump visit

Americans living in Britain have been warned to "keep a low profile" during Donald Trump's visit to avoid being caught up in "violent" protests.

LONDON, July 11 (Reuters) - Britain on Wednesday geared up for the arrival of Donald Trump just hours after the US president waded into the Brexit crisis gripping Prime Minister Theresa May's government and portrayed the closest USA ally in Europe as a country in turmoil.

Temporary signs indicate road closures around the USA ambassador's residence, where special fences have been erected prior to the US presidential visit at the end of the week, in Regent's Park in London, Britain, July 10, 2018.

An alert posted on the embassy's website Tuesday listed advice for any America who unexpectedly finds themselves caught up in an anti-Trump demonstration.

According to Murray, the 20-foot-high image of diapered Trump clutching a phone in his tiny hands is supposed to be seen as, "Not a protest against America or Americans".

On Wednesday, the Guardian newspaper reported "the United Kingdom police mobilisation for Trump's visit would be the largest since the 2011 English riots", when London was shocked by five days of violence and unrest, with wild scenes of looting and arson, met by mass deployment of 10,000 police.

Norfolk members of Together Against Trump are planning to join protests in London and have organised a coach to get people to the capital.
