Greenwich became the first London borough to formally bar Donald Trump from entering during his planned state visit to the UK next year.

Royal Borough of Greenwich councillors voted unanimously on a motion that stated the US President "would not be welcome" in the area if the state engagement goes ahead.

The ban comes after Mr Trump retweeted a string of unverified anti-Islamic videos posted by far-right group Britain First’s deputy leader last month.

According to The Evening Standard , Greenwich council expressed “alarm at the decision of President Trump to retweet Islamophobic Propaganda” and “sadness at the President's bigoted attitude towards women and ethnic minorities”.

America's London Ambassador has signalled that Trump is due to visit the UK early next year.

A petition to prevent Donald Trump's from making an official State Visit to the UK, that gathered 1,863,708 signatures, was debated in parliament in February but rejected.

While Trump's state visit to the capital looks imminent, here's a list of London landmarks and attractions he won't be able to visit following the Greenwich ban.

The O2 Arena

The former Millenium Dome is one of London's most iconic buildings but based in the Greenwich Penninsula, it is not one Mr Trump will get to enjoy.

If the President visits in January he will have to forgo the following events at the O2.

NBA London Game 2018 (January 11)

The Royal Observatory is a UNESCO site, home to Greenwich Meantime it has played a major role in the history of astronomy and navigation. It is one of London's most popular tourists attractions, but not one Mr Trump will be able to step foot in.

Cutty Sark

The famous Cutty Sark clipper tea ship is one of the last tea clippers to be built and one of the fastest.

A National Historic Ship she is docked in Greenwich, where the US President will never lay eyes on her.

Now all we need is Hillingdon Council - the borough in which Heathrow Airport sits - to follow suit (we've asked).
