England is burning an effigy of Donald Trump holding Hillary Clinton's head
LONDON — Remember, remember the fifth of November.
With Nov. 5 this year falling so close to the U.S. presidential elections, it's perhaps no surprise that a certain international-headline-making presidential candidate will feature in Britain's yearly ritual of setting things on fire.
Saturday is Guy Fawkes Night in the UK, when bonfires, fireworks and effigies go up in flames to commemorate a foiled plot to blow up Parliament in 1605.

"This was an obvious choice," said Edenbridge Bonfire Society in a video interview. He's easy to characterise and he is well-known figure, they said. They reckon Mr Trump would find it amusing, and point out that it's just a bit of fun and for charity.
Bonfire night is kind of a big deal in the town of Edenbridge. There's a party atmosphere in the town all day. A torch-lit procession in the evening is led by their Bishop of the Bonfire, his choirboys and the Society's effigies — including Guy Fawkes himself. There are carnival floats and marching bands, and the main event is the torching of the celebrity effigy.
Previous years have included effigies of Sepp Blatter, Lance Armstrong, Tony Blair and Wayne Rooney.
The 'Trump carrying Clinton's head effigy' will be set alight on Saturday evening, and the Edenbridge Bonfire Society will live stream it on their Facebook page.
