The extra cameras will be removed at the end of the summit.

There have been a number of extraordinary security measures undertaken in advance of the summit.

Authorities are planning to put up fencing in the downtown and to designate a zone around the convention centre to be restricted to G20 delegates.

Toronto's CN Tower will be closed to the public throughout the duration of the summit as a further security precaution.
