Security ramps up ahead of G20 as Barack Obama's arrival plans are revealed.......

US president Barack Obama’s travel plans have been revealed ahead of his arrival for next week’s G20 summit in Brisbane.
Contrary to official reports, Mr Obama is planning on arriving in the dead of night at the ultra-secure Amberley air base.
Air Force One will land at the base, while other world leaders are set to use the G20 terminal at Brisbane's international airport.
Contingency plans include flying Mr Obama into the city using his personal helicopter or a high-speed motorcade.
He is scheduled to speak at the University of Queensland the morning after his arrival.
Up to 26 activist protest groups are set to begin their demonstrations from today ahead of the summit, which will see leaders from the world’s 20 leading economies gather for talks.
Extra security measures around Brisbane have begun ramping up, with additional officers flown in from interstate and New Zealand.
Those forces have been given permission to carry firearms, while international security teams are yet to be cleared to do so.
Up to 7,600 delegates and 2,500 media representatives will be in attendance at the conference, which takes place on November 15 and 16 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
