London protester: 'We are living off baked beans'

An anti-capitalist protest in London's financial district has continued for a second day, with protesters gathered outside St Paul's Cathedral.

The demonstration is part of a global day of protests urging politicians to listen to people and not to bankers.

Police had initially said it would be "illegal and disrespectful" to camp in front of the cathedral, but they later announced they would not be moving anyone on from the site.

One protester told the BBC she knew of a family that was counting the baked beans on their children's plates.

"We are sick to death of our government and these corporate banks... keeping all these profits for themselves", she said.
