“A Bishop’s Stortford student has been busy this weekend creating a stiff message about climate change for Donald Trump in the hope of catching the US president’s eye as he flies into Stansted on Monday morning for the start of his state visit,” according to the Bishop’s Stortford Independent newspaper.

“Online upcycling entrepreneur Ollie Nancarrow, 18, spent part of Saturday and Sunday mowing the message in the grounds of his family home just outside Hatfield Heath, with the full approval of mother and stepfather Vanessa and David Ambler.

“Alongside the greeting ‘Oi Trump,’ the teenager – who is taking A Levels in art, product design and business studies at The Bishop’s Stortford High School – has crafted a cock and balls.

“This is followed by the message ‘Climate Change is Real’ and accompanied by a polar bear.

“Ollie, who runs online marketplace www.born-eco.com, connecting buyers with eco-friendly traders, said: ‘Donald Trump and his denial of climate change are not welcome and I want him to be fully aware of that when he flies into Stansted on Monday.”
