([London] Times) Eviction of St Paul’s activists begins

Police and bailiffs moved in to evict protesters from the Occupy London site at St Paul’s Cathedral in the early hours of this morning.

The City of London Corporation said in a statement that it had begun to enforce High Court orders for the removal of the protest camp, which began on October 15 last year.

The corporation had called on protesters at the camp to remove their tents voluntarily, but the BBC estimated between 50 and 60 remained there today.
