It comes after Mayor of London Sadiq Khan approved a petition and a crowdfunding campaign which raised more than £16,000 to get the six-metre inflatable - named the Trump baby - in the air.

Speaking to Sky News, Leo Murray - one of the activists behind the campaign - said: ''We didn't get off to the best start with the Mayor's office over this, who originally told us that they didn't recognise 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. Trump Baby will fly!''

A spokesperson for the Mayor of London added: ''The Mayor supports the right to peaceful protest and understands that this can take many different forms.

''His city operations team have met with the organisers and have given them permission to use Parliament Square Garden as a grounding point for the blimp.''
