The heads of state from 28 countries will gather to evaluate Nato’s current strategies and discuss policy direction.

US President Donald Trump will be among those attending and arrives in the UK today.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has already suggested its “best” if Trump does not interfere in the general election, due to the President’s track record of commenting on Britain’s affairs.

There are a number of separate events due to take place prior to the summit on Wednesday, however.

An evening event will also be held at Buckingham Palace tomorrow.
