UK cops clear Occupy camp

Police tore down the anti-capitalist camp outside St Paul’s Cathedral in London on Tuesday, arresting 20 people as they brought a swift end to the last major Occupy protest around the world.

Dozens of police officers and bailiffs moved in shortly after midnight on Monday and within hours the encampment, which sprung up in October in support of similar actions in the United States and Spain, was cleared.

However, about 60 tents remained pitched at a square a short walk from St Paul’s which has acted as an overspill area for the past four months.
The protesters vowed to continue their fight.
