Several hundred people have gathered outside St Paul's Cathedral for an Occupy London rally. It comes more than six months after members of the campaign group were prevented from occupying Paternoster Square.
Instead, activists camped outside St Paul's Cathedral just yards away from the Stock Exchange and remained there for four and a half months. City of London Police say it has a "proportionate" operation in place around today's peaceful demonstration. St Paul's Cathedral remains open to visitors.
