I've been spreading this story so I will try to explain where it came from - 
I didn't make it up, but maybe I inferred some things. I've been talking to 
people and then forgetting who told me what.

I'm sure there will be a security zone of 120 houses around the Marriott - 
that was in the Telegraph. I've heard that people in that zone have already 
had security checks done on who lives in their house. I've heard that in 
Gleneagles, people in the security zone will have ID cards issued. I may 
have inferred that people in the Nether Edge zone will have to carry 
passports during the G8 - but I cannot see how else it could work, so it 
seems a fair inference. (If not the highest standard of journalism 

Hope that helps
