If you'd missed the news - President Trump is visiting Buckinghamshire today.

Mr. Trump will be meeting Primer Minister Theresa May at her country residence, Chequers, near Wendover this morning.


He is due to fly in from Surrey and arrive at around 10.40am, will hold a talk and a press conference.

The President is then due to leave at 2.25pm.


There are and will be road closures around Chequers, notably at Butlers Cross.

We're being advised to avoid the area all around the estate if possible.
