US President Donald Trump has been greeted by an image of a giant penis mowed into the grass while approaching London's Stansted Airport on Monday (local time).
The "stiff" welcome was accompanied by "Oi Trump". The man behind the message is Ollie Nancarrow, 18, a student and entrepreneur. His unconventional protest, located under the Stansted flightpath, was inspired by the president's views on climate change.

The penis presentation was mowed into the grounds of his parent's property in Hatfield Heath, northeast of London.
"Guess who's been busy today mowing a stiff message for Trump under the Stansted flightpath," Nancarrow tweeted to his born_eco business account.
"Please share and let's see how far we can spread the welcome!"
Another image of a polar bear, accompanied by the message "climate change is real", was also the brainchild of Nancarrow, who carved the more politically-correct memo into an adjacent field also in direct view of incoming Stansted flights.
On Monday evening (local time) Trump attended a state banquet with the Queen and senior members of Theresa May's government. Leader of the Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn boycotted the dinner, as well as Liberal Democrat Party leader Vince Cable.
Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow and mayor of London Sadiq Khan also refused to attend the banquet.
Trump's state visit has already generated significant controversy. Alongside allegedly calling Meghan Markle "nasty" and Sadiq Khan "dumb" and "incompetent", the President also ruffled feathers by interfering in the upcoming election to replace May as prime minister.
In interviews with The Sun and The Sunday Times, Trump praised frontrunning candidate Boris Johnson and criticised May.
Business Insider reports that large protests are scheduled against Trump in London on Tuesday (local time), with the giant diapered depiction of Trump set to appear for a second time after its grand debut last year.
The president is visiting the United Kingdom on a three-day state visit after an invite was extended by the Queen.
