Protesters took to the streets of Wigan once more to object to US president Donald Trump’s policies and oppose him receiving a state visit.

Momentum Wigan, Leigh And Makerfield and Stand Up To Racism organised the demonstration on Market Place.

Around a dozen activists holding placards took part.

The campaigners also collected signatures for a petition.

They were attempting to deny the controversial politician a full state visit when he comes to the UK later this year.
