Campaigners have been protesting against development work taking place at a hotel in west Cornwall to be used during the G7 summit.

The Carbis Bay Hotel started work prior to submitting plans, angering environmentalists.

Campaigners claimed the work was damaging ancient woodland and badger setts in the area, near St Ives.

A planning application has since been made for three buildings. The hotel has been approached for a comment.

The three single-storey buildings are to provide nine meeting rooms for the summit, due to take place from 11 to 13 June.
