Donald Trump faces giant penis mowed into field near airport where he lands for UK state visit

A teenager has mowed an anti-Trump message, complete with a giant penis, into the grass of his family home ahead of the US president’s UK state visit.

Ollie Nancarrow spent his weekend mowing the words “Oi Trump” into his lawn, near Hatfield Heath, in Essex.

The 18-year-old also used the mower to etch a giant polar bear, penis and the words “climate change is real” into the grass, according to the Bishop’s Stortford Independent.

The A-level student hopes that the US president will spot his creation as Air Force One approaches Stansted Airport, which is near Hatfield Heath, on Monday morning.

Donald Trump and his denial of climate change are not welcome and I want him to be fully aware of that when he flies in to Stansted on Monday,” he said.

The teenager is the founder of Born Eco, a website which connects shoppers with eco-friendly traders.

Mr Trump’s controversial state visit will unfold over three days.

He is expected to meet the Queen and senior royals at Buckingham Palace, before dignitaries gather for a state dinner on Monday evening.

Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the opposition, is boycotting the event, while Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, has compared Mr Trump to the ”fascists of the 20th century”.

Thousands of protesters are also expected to rally against Mr Trump’s presence at a protest in Trafalgar Square on Tuesday.

Mr Trump has repeatedly dismissed the threat of climate change since taking office.
