Donald Trump has been spotted playing a second round of golf at Turnberry resort ahead of his trip to meet Vladmir Putin.

His Scottish golf club is crawling with secret service as it has been revealed it is costing the British taxpayer £5million to cover security his two-night stay in Ayrshire.

Anti-Trump protests flopped yesterday with Police Scotland planning for 100,000 to march on Edinburgh and Glasgow with only 7,000 people turning up. 

Now questions may be raised about the expense of the security measures outside his Scottish resort after a dozen demonstrators congregated outside.

And it appears officers have been more troubled with their ponchos than protesters with two policemen seen grappling with the waterproof technology during a light shower this afternoon.  

The only spot of bother officials have faced so far was a rogue para-glider who flew above the resort on Friday with a banner reading: ‘Well below par’. One man has since been arrested and charged. 

Aside from the minor disturbance, the atmosphere outside the US president’s Scottish bolt-hole been likened to that of a ‘village fete’ with the small handful of protesters cheerily sharing packets of Bombay mix.  

Mail on Line says there were only about a dozen protesters at Turnberry.
