Contrary to reports, Jeremy Corbyn did come face-to-face with controversial US President Donald Trump this week – at Lauderdale House in Highgate.

The Labour Party leader was visiting the Highgate attraction which is currently hosting an art exhibition which includes a portrait of Mr Trump.

Alison Meek's 'Post Lux, Tenebras' exhibition is being exhibited in the Upstairs Gallery at the Waterlow Park venue, and it includes a black and white illustration of a vexed-looking Donald Trump.

Alison's exhibition is inspired by her disquiet at "the disconnect between the knowledge that human have acquired and, what seems to me, deeply disturbing decisions that are currently being made which ignore this accumulated wisdom".

It began on May 29 and runs until June 24.
