Sky News reports:
Supporters of US President Donald Trump have disrupted a speech by Sadiq Khan, calling for the London Mayor to be arrested.
Mr Khan was about to start speaking to the Fabian Society in London when he was disrupted by protesters from a group called the White Pendragons, who shouted pro-Trump and pro-Brexit slogans.
It came after a tweet by Mr Khan on Friday, in which he said Mr Trump had “got the message” that he was “not welcome” in London after the President cancelled a planned visit to open the new US embassy.
In a video posted on social media, one protester could be heard saying: “Ladies and gentlemen, we’re here today to make a non-violent, peaceful citizen’s arrest.”

Mayor Khan, cool as a cucumber, ‘owns’ some ‘very stable geniuses’ who interrupted his speech claiming millions of UK citizens support #Trump. The evidence suggests he’s even more unpopular here than in the US – and that’s saying something! https://t.co/FXA7Iu4zUH
