Their message reads: "We will come together in the spirit of democracy, honouring the champions of human rights who have gone before us.

"Please spread the word, so that our numbers are too great to ignore and the message to the world is clear.The politics of fear and division have no place in 2017."

Demonstrations against the President-elect will also be taking place today in Broadgate in Coventry, the University of Warwick, Dortmund Square in Leeds, Sheffield city centre and Huddersfield's Market Place.

Trump is being sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America at 17:00 GMT today.
