Protesters arrested

Eleven people have been arrested after a day of protest in London saw anti-capitalists from the Occupy movement pitch tents outside the Bank of England.

The arrests were made for public order offences linked to the demonstrations, leading to around 10 tents being set up, City of London Police said.

The protest by around 300 demonstrators was part of a global day of action which also took place in cities including New York, Athens and Madrid.

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.
