St Paul's Cathedral closes for the first time since WWII

St Paul's Cathedral is to close its doors for the first time since the second world war, because of the anti-capitalist demonstrators who have been camping on its doorstep for almost a week.

The Dean of St Paul's said the decision was taken with "heavy hearts", for health and safety reasons.
