The G8 summit was held at the Gleneagles Hotel, Scotland, from July 6th to 8th, 2005. Leaders of the eight largest economies, and their entourages, assembled to discuss economic and political issues and the state of the world, including terrorism. Previous G8 summits had sparked off waves of protests and violence. Consequently, a huge security exercise took place in central Scotland for the 2005 summit. With Bush, Putin, Blair and a clutch of other premiers on hand, their safety had to be protected—as did their health, and that of those around them. Chris Robertson was charged with that task.
