As world leaders arrive in Cornwall ahead of this weekend's G7 Leader's Summit, both Devon and Cornwall Police and Cornwall Council have issued numerous statements regarding the potential disruption the event could cause locals.

With UK staycations also set to be much more popular this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, traffic and travel disruptions coming in to Cornwall have also seen locals and residents pre-emptively warned about the potential disruption this could cause.

South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SWASFT) have also warned about the disruption caused by the summit, saying in a statement: "With unique security considerations, the event will bring a level of inevitable disruption to the local communities, particularly around the four official locations of Carbis Bay, St Ives, Falmouth and Newquay.

"People are encouraged to plan travel in advance, due to the likely impact on the transport network within the county."

More information on traffic travel will be updated as information and details become available.
