COP26 is fast approaching, with Glasgow set to play host to some of the world's most influential leaders over the 12-day conference.

The event will see countries come together to establish goals to improve their carbon footprint, reduce the impact of climate change and limit global warming. 

Hosted at the SEC, a huge security operation will be in place over the course of COP26 due to the high profile nature of the event. 

After Donald Trump, the former US President, withdrew from the Paris Agreement in 2020, Joe Biden made it his duty to rejoin the treaty, doing so on his first day in office earlier this year. 

But will the current US President travel to Glasgow in November to attend COP26?
