No baby blimp over Holy­rood

The Herald - - TRUMP VISIT -

CAM­PAIGN­ERS had planned to fly the Don­ald Trump baby blimp at Holy­rood – but were re­fused per­mis­sion.

The 20ft in­flat­able de­pict­ing the US Pres­i­dent as a nappy-clad baby hold­ing a mo­bile phone was flown above Par­lia­ment Square in Lon­don yesterday.

It prompted Mr Trump to say it made him “feel un­wel­come” in the city, on his sec­ond day of a four-day UK visit.

Cam­paign­ers had planned to trans­port the blimp to Scot­land overnight on the sleeper train and fly it at a protest near the Scot­tish Par­lia­ment to­day.

They were still hop­ing to fly it else­where in the cap­i­tal.
