Protest camp costs St Paul's £16k a day

St Paul's Cathedral and The City of London Corporation are holding talks to find a resolution to an anti-capitalist demonstration.

The presence of protesters camped outside has forced the cathedral to close for the first time since the Second World War.

It is costing St Paul's around £16,000 a day in lost tourism revenue.

But around 300 protesters, who are living in their tents, have voted to stay for the time being.

The BBC's Ben Ando reports.
