The US government has announced the start of construction on 8 prototype barriers for the border with Mexico, a campaign promise of President Donald Trump.

The Customs and Border Protection says four of the prototypes will be made from concrete, while the others are from "alternate or other materials".

Its plan is to try out several sections of wall near San Diego.

President Trump had promised to build a "big beautiful wall" between the countries.
