WHEN world leaders meet in London on Thursday for the G20 summit, St Albans man Peter Fell will be there to record the moment.

Peter, aged 50, of Chancery Close, is heading a team of engineers broadcasting the event for TV.

His firm, Feltech, which is based at Porters Wood Industrial Estate in St Albans, was chosen to record the summit.

Peter, who went to the former St Julian's - now Marlborough School - in St Albans, said: "It certainly is an exciting prospect to be up close and personal next to the 32 most important leaders in the world."

He is no stranger to politicians on the world's stage having covered the G8 Summit in 2005 when Tony Blair was Prime Minister.

Peter, who studied at the then Hatfield Polytechnic, later worked as a broadcast engineer for ITN.

His wife Jacqui also works for Feltech and the couple have two children, George, aged eight, and Nicholas, six.

Peter set up his business 20 years ago and it now employs 21 people and has an annual turnover of around £3.5million.
