WATCH: Trump Baby cleared to fly over London

Protesters have been given approval to fly a blimp depicting Donald Trump as a giant orange baby over Parliament during the U.S. president's visit to Britain next week.

The Greater London Authority says the 20-foot inflatable can fly two hours on July 13.

Activist Leo Murray, one of those behind the blimp, said Thursday that City Hall ``originally told us that they didn't recognize Trump Baby as legitimate protest. But, following a huge groundswell of public support for our plan, it looks like City Hall has rediscovered its sense of humour.''

Anti-Trump protests are planned in London, a city the president is expected to largely avoid. He is expected to meet Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle and see Prime Minister Theresa May at her country retreat, Chequers.
