Officers who will secure
Donald Trump’s visit to the UK are being forced to sleep in ‘unacceptable’ conditions worse than cells, the
Police Federation has said.
Pictures posted on Twitter show cramped lines of camp beds filling a vast gymnasium and sleeping mats on the floor of a squash court for officers to rest on between long shifts policing the
US President’s trip, starting on Thursday.
The Police Federation has complained of the conditions its members are facing during the operation, which will see
officers from across the country enlisted at a cost of up to £10 million.
