    The second day of the G7 summit saw an array of protests, dominated by environmental messages.

    It kicked off with a paddle-out protest declaring an ocean and climate emergency.

    Organisers say about 1,000 people took to the water on paddleboards, kayaks and surfboards at Gyllyngvase beach in Falmouth at midday.

    Campaigners say they never expected such a large turnout.


    Thousands of Extinction Rebellion campaigners marched through Falmouth on Saturday in a bid to highlight the threat to seas and wildlife unless more decisive action is not taken to combat climate change.

    Caricatures of world leaders stood on the street as campaigners passed by with chants of "G7 drowning in promises" and "action not words".

    In the evening, while world leaders enjoyed a barbecue on the beach, Ocean Rebellion projected slogans on to a ship housing hundreds of police officers drafted in for the summit.

    Police were on scene in Falmouth Harbour at the protest involving a flotilla of boats.

    World leaders sunbathing

    World leaders were also spotted sunbathing in another climate change protest at Swanpool Beach near Falmouth on Saturday.

    Oxfam activists wearing papier mache heads were calling for the world leaders, currently in Cornwall, to commit to cutting emissions and to provide more financial help to vulnerable countries trying to respond to the impacts of climate change.
