It’s been another busy day for the leaders at the G7 Summit

It’s been another busy day for the G7 leaders today with plenty of photo opportunities and events are set to continue this evening.

During his interview with the BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg at the G7, the prime minister is asked whether he regrets allowing tens of thousands of people to travel between the UK and India as the Delta variant took hold in April.

In response, Boris Johnson says: “Don’t forget we put India on the red list [of countries with toughest travel restrictions].”

Challenged about whether this was done too late, he says it was done “before the variant had even been identified as a variant under investigation let alone identified as a variant of concern”.

This evening the leaders of the G7 and their partners are invited to a barbecue on the beach in Carbis Bay, with local mackerel, crab and lobster on the menu – plus the chance to toast marshmallows around fire pits.

Chef Simon Stallard, from the Hidden Hut in Portscatho, will treat the visitors to a range of seafood canapes, followed by seared sirloin steak and lobster served with local veg and – to finish – a Beach Hut Sundae.

Cornish sparkling wine, local beer and a hedgerow fizz cocktail are among the refreshments on offer.

And if the guests are still peckish, there will be a gooey flourish of baked brie, hot buttered rum and those toasted marshmallows to round off the informal formalities.

Entertainment will include a flypast by the Red Arrows and sea shanties from Du Hag Owr.


Hundreds of protesters brought streets to a standstill on the second day of the G7 summit in Cornwall.

Campaigners from Extinction Rebellion marched through Falmouth in one of the biggest demonstrations of the day.

And cleaner seas campaigners Surfers Against Sewage held a paddle-out protest at a Falmouth beach.

Devon and Cornwall Police has tweeted its thanks to demonstrators for keeping protests peaceful.

US First Lady Jill Biden has joined Carrie Johnson and other partners of G7 summit leaders on a visit to a Cornish clifftop theatre.

A group of children gave a special performance for the partners of the G7 leaders earlier.

Under glorious sunshine at the open-air Minack Theatre in Porthcurno, the children performed an environmental parable about the harm of plastic pollution.

Carrie Johnson, Jill Biden and Brigitte Macron were all in attendance – but the need for secrecy meant not even the children knew beforehand who would be in the audience.
