The leaders of the world's eight wealthiest countries will descend upon Fermanagh for the 2013 G8 summit.

As protestors plan anti-G8 ralllies, thousands of police, army and private security officers have been trained and special prison cells set up for troublemakers.

Landmark buildings have been covered in perspex and a 'ring of steel' has been erected around the Lough Erne resort.

Meanwhile, hotel staff have been drawing up the menus and dusting down the rooms for the G8 leaders.
