Donald Trump will be ferried around the UK in a £1.5million bomb-proof vehicle affectionately-known as ‘The Beast’.

In fact, security concerns mean the US President has two of the stretched, armour-plated vehicles in Britain so would-be attackers don’t know which one he is in.

The Beast is a seven-seat black limousine which is designed to give Mr Trump the ultimate protection.

Accompanying the president on his overseas trip is a White House doctor, who is at his time as all times along with one of five rotating military aides who carry the nuclear ‘football’ – equipped with communication tools and a book with prepared war plans.

It can be turned into a sealed panic room with oxygen tanks, night-vision camera and reinforced steel plating said to be able to resist bullets, chemical attacks and bombs.

The Cadillac has Kevlar-reinforced tyres and steel rims that can keep the vehicle moving even if the tyres have been destroyed.

Bottles of the president’s blood type are carried on board in case of a medical emergency, and a satellite phone enables communication to be maintained from anywhere in the world.

As well as being able to defend the president, the car also features a host of attacking capabilities, such as a pump-action shotgun and a tear gas cannon.

The two ‘Beasts’ are among and huge motorcade of vehicles flown into Britain on two United States Air Force Boeing C-17 transport planes ahead of Trump’s visit.

A motorcade of Chevrolet and Ford surveillance and satellite communication vehicles were also on the planes which landed in Glasgow’s Prestwick Airport yesterday.
