  • Carrie Symonds gives a speech at Birdfair

Boris Johnson's partner Carrie Symonds has made her first public speech since moving into Downing Street last month.

She will then appear on a Question Time-style panel alongside guests including Chris Packham, presenter of BBC SpringWatch.

After resigning from Tory HQ, the UK's "first girlfriend" is now a marketing senior adviser at Oceana, a US-based environmental campaign group.

Tim Appleton, founder of bird-watching conference Birdfair, said Ms Symonds will give a five-minute speech on her support for conservation at the event on Friday.

She quit as director of communications for the Conservatives previous year and is now a senior adviser for United States environmental campaign group Oceana.

A profile on the charity's site describes her as being "passionate about protecting the oceans and marine life". But she was bumped up to having her own speaking slot and addressed the event in her capacity as an ocean conservationist.

But she was "profoundly optimistic", saying those who cared for the environment, particularly the younger generation, were in a majority.

More than 24,000 people attended Birdfair past year over three days. The Birdfair event at the Rutland Water Nature Reserve is affectionately known by those who attend as the "birdwatchers" Glastonbury'.

He said: "We're absolutely over the moon that Carrie is supporting us and we hope she will continue supporting us and conservation for many years to come".
