Protesters vote to stay at St Paul's Cathedral

Anti-capitalist protesters who have been camping outside St Paul's Cathedral have voted to stay, despite appeals for them to leave.

This weekend, the Dean says he has been forced to close the cathedral doors for health and safety reasons, as demonstrators camping outside refuse to move.

The last time the famous landmark cancelled its Sunday services was during the Blitz in 1941.

The protesters, from Occupy London Stock Exchange, have been in St Paul's Churchyard for a week.

Peter, who is one of them, says dialogue with the church will continue.
