The election of Donald Trump to the US presidency has prompted the widest range of reaction around the world. Here in London, the businessman-turned-statesman has elicited a wave of responses from street artists to shopkeepers to anyone else with a means of expression. Here are some of the Trump-fuelled interventions, snapped around town.

For a time, it looked like we might have a President Trump and a Prime Minister Boris. (And it could yet happen.) This image originated in Bristol, but here makes its way onto a Shoreditch wall. Image by M@.
