'Occupy London' protest enters third day

Protesters demonstrating against 'corporate greed' have camped out in London's financial district for a second night.

The demonstration is part of a global movement, urging politicians to listen to people and not to bankers. It was inspired by the 'Occupy Wall Street' demonstrations in New York, which started four weeks ago.

Around 2,000 to 3,000 people took part in the London protest on Saturday and up to 300 were still in the area on Sunday evening. Eight people were arrested over the weekend, of which six have been charged for offences including affray and cannabis possession.
