Police Occupy London, Police and bailiffs have evicted anti-capitalist protesters and removed tents from the Occupy London camp at St Paul’s Cathedral.
The operation, which began just after midnight, was mostly peaceful but there were 20 arrests.
A St Paul’s spokesman said: “We regret the camp had to be removed by bailiffs.”
The City of London Corporation said it “regretted” that it had become necessary to evict the protesters.
Occupy London, which campaigns against corporate greed, set up the camp on 15 October.
The campaigners were refused permission to appeal against a High Court decision to allow their eviction to proceed.
