Anti-Trump protests in London have cost taxpayers almost £290,000, according to shock new figures.
Scotland Yard spent the huge sum policing four anti-Trump rallies in the capital earlier this year.
The protests included the ‘Stop Trump’ march, held outside the US Embassy to oppose his travel ban on people from six Muslim-majority countries.
Arranged by left-wing groups such as Stand up to Racism and Stop the War, the demo on February 4 left taxpayers with a bill of £89,000.
Nearly £70,000 went towards policing the Women’s March – held by feminist campaigners on January 21, a day after Mr Trump’s inauguration.
The force spent a further £130,000 keeping order at two other protests against the US President’s controversial travel ban.
