Trump’s costly visit
THE police operation for Donald Trump’s visit to the UK is estimated to have cost nearly £18 million, it has emerged.
Thousands of officers were deployed to cover the four-day trip this summer in the largest mobilisation since the 2011 riots.
Sara Thornton, who chairs the National Police Chiefs’ Council, said it was a “significant operation” with the US President visiting four force areas and protests taking place in many others.
