A delegation of five Members of Congress of the United States of America arrived in Gibraltar for a two-day visit on Wednesday.

It follows the trip to Washington made by deputy chief minister Dr Joseph Garcia earlier this year, and was organised through the United Kingdom under the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act (MECEA) scheme.

After a briefing on political developments including Brexit, the visitors met the Governor of Gibraltar, Lt General Edward Davis, toured Parliament and were given a sightseeing tour.
