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.

Most of the events will centre around The City and ultimately East London's ExCel Centre for the summit on Sunday.
