Police evict Occupy protesters

Police have evicted Occupy London protesters from their seven-month occupation of Finsbury Square in north London.

The clear out was organised by Islington Council after successful court action by the authority to move the group.

The camp, which is made up of around 135 tents and a wooden structure, was set up on the public land of the square in October, as an extension of the Occupy movement's protest in St Paul's Churchyard - which ended in eviction in February.
