The G7 summit is taking place in the resort of Carbis Bay in Cornwall, in the south-west of England

The G7 (Group of Seven) is an organisation made up of the world's seven largest so-called advanced economies

Global coronavirus vaccinations and climate change are due to be the focus of the summit between the leaders of the seven nations

Seven people have been arrested after two vehicles were stopped and searched about three miles from the summit venue

US President Joe Biden and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson had their first face-to-face meeting yesterday

Johnson says the talks were "terrific" and says the US-UK alliance should be called the "indestructible relationship"

Most of the discussions over the three days will take place behind closed doors

More than 5,000 extra police officers - on top of 1,500 from Devon and Cornwall - will be working around the summit


Boris Johnson’s decision to fly to the G7 summit has raised questions over whether it was the most environmentally friendly way of travelling there.So what was the carbon cost of his flight and could he have got to Cornwall in a greener way?Reality Check has been looking at the different ways he could have made the journey and estimated the contribution each would have made to carbon emissions.
