The embassy listed a few "actions to take", including: being aware of surroundings, keeping a low profile, monitoring local media and exercising caution "if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent".

LONDON, July 11 (Reuters) - Britain on Wednesday geared up for the arrival of Donald Trump just hours after the USA president waded into the Brexit crisis gripping Prime Minister Theresa May's government and portrayed the closest US ally in Europe as a country in turmoil. The first Labour Live event has been organised by the Labour Party.

President Trump will head to London on Friday, where he's expected to face protests at every turn.

After the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, Trump will head to England, where Prime Minister Theresa May's government is in turmoil over her plans for exiting the European Union.

Tens of thousands of protesters are expected to turn out against Donald Trump when he visits Britain this week but some believe the protests are an embarrassment and that the United States president deserves a warm welcome, writes Alex Fraser.

On Sunday he moves on to Helsinki to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin for long-awaited talks on neutral territory.

Cave rescue experts have said they consider an underwater escape to be a last resort, especially with people untrained in diving. At 10 a.m. local time, 10 divers headed to chamber 9 where the boys are located and the others will remain along the route.

"There are many Trump supporters around here who will be happy to see it", landlord Damien Smyth, whose wife is from NY, told the Evening Standard newspaper.

The Embassy sent a "demonstration alert" warning to citizens ahead of Donald Trump's arrival in London on Thursday July 12.

Trump arrives in Britain on Thursday after a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit and thousands of protesters are expected to join demonstrations during his visit, including plans to fly a blimp over parliament portraying Trump as an orange, snarling baby.

The embassy said these demonstrations were expected to attract large crowds and cause road closures. This remark came following comments Trump made about London Mayor Sadiq Khan in the aftermath of the London Bridge terrorist attack, which killed seven.

While the protests are taking place in the British capital, Trump will meet the queen at Windsor Castle where he will be welcomed with a guard of honour before having tea with the 92-year-old monarch. Murray says that the city "rediscovered its sense of humor" in granting permission to "Trump baby".
