CAMDEN protesters and police officers are preparing for the G20 London Summit this week.
As world leaders and diplomats fly in for the talks, thousands of police officers and protestors will converge on the streets of London.
Police from Camden are being redeployed to add extra security to the talks and to monitor protests while campaigners, particularly those concerned about climate change, will march to make their message heard to the world's politicians.
Most of the events will centre around The City and ultimately East London's ExCel Centre for the summit on Sunday.
