- Story Text: Security in Cornwall was tight on Friday (June 11) as G7 leaders arrived for the three-day summit in the south of England.
An extra 5,000 officers have been drafted in to help the operation with about 6,500 officers and staff involved altogether, Devon and Cornwall Police said.
The G7 summit is the first in-person meeting of the leaders of major developed economies for nearly two years and will focus on the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change.
Police have closed off roads and coastal paths to Carbis Bay, the small seaside resort which is hosting the event, erecting steel fences and putting other restrictions in place.
