In Pictures: Trump plays golf while police and protesters surround his course

Donald Trump and son Eric have made time for a round of golf during his visit to the UK.

Donald Trump has played an unusual round of golf surrounded by rings of police and protesters at one of his Scottish courses.

The human lines of police officers out-numbered the players and caddies at Turnberry.

The president is making what has been described as a “private visit” to Scotland, after meetings with Prime Minister Theresa May and the Queen on Friday.
