Road blocks, police helicopters and blacked-out windows: But just who are the billionaires and politicians arriving for secretive Bilderberg conference at Watford hotel and what do they do there?

Billionaire business executives, high-ranking political figures and even members of royal families are expected to be among the 130 or so attendees at the Grove Hotel in Hertfordshire. Amid tight security, protesters including Steve Jolly (left) from the organisation No CCTV gathered in an encampment outside the hotel. Meanwhile, a banner declaring 'Bilderberg ate my hamster' was placed on a security barrier (top right) as police stood guard (bottom right) around a massive ring of steel thrown up around the estate.
