St Paul's Cathedral statement on protest camp eviction:

"In the past few months, we have all been made to re-examine important issues about social and economic justice and the role the cathedral can play.

We regret the camp had to be removed by bailiffs but we are fully committed to continuing to promote these issues through our worship, teaching and Institute. The cathedral is open today and set aside for prayer and reflection. The cathedral is accessible to everyone.

The area currently cordoned off is for essential repairs to damaged paving.

Clergy are available throughout the day for pastoral care and support."
