Hundreds of people are expected to march through Bristol city centre this evening in protest to President Trump's visit to the UK.

Commuters are being warned it could take them longer to get home from work because of this march, which starts at 5pm at The Fountains by the Harbourside.
 
The protest is expected to go past College Green, Park Street and Clifton Triangle, which will have an impact on other main roads into the city.
 
Avon and Somerset Police say they are working with Bristol City Council to keep disruption to a minimum.
 
Inspector Martin Rowland said: "We have a long and proud history of helping to facilitate peaceful protests, particularly in Bristol city centre. Our aim is to facilitate the protest while also balancing the needs of people who live, work and visit the city. We want to make people aware there may be some disruption during the evening commute and would encourage people to consider their travel plans and avoid travelling through the city centre during the times the protest is expected to take place."
