Sian Williams’s TV Diary

I haven’t been before and I don’t know what to expect. Probably a small gathering of journalists clustering around the press team, asking questions about the latest Trump tweet.

When I arrive, the lawn is swarming with hundreds of people. It’s surreal. They’re playing Beyoncé from loudspeakers while US snipers cover the joint from the rooftops. There’s ITV News’s Robert Peston over by the Starbucks tent, Sky’s Adam Boulton by the Dunkin’ Donuts. The canapés are mini hot dogs with American flags in them.
