It passed along Ferry Lane, Tottenham Hale, surrounded by dozens of police motorbikes and other limousines.

Alex, a software engineer who lived nearby, ran outside when she heard police closing the road ahead of the motorcade.

She said: “I had seen the motorcade go past on Thursday when it arrived then back the other way on Saturday.

“So I guessed they would come back with Biden at some point.

“They closed off the road with police motorbikes ahead of the cars, about one minute before.

“They prevented anyone crossing the road or going through junctions.

“My thoughts were - that’s an impressive sight for Tottenham!”
