Occupy court ruling has 'important implications'

The City of London Corporation has won its High Court bid to evict protesters from outside St Paul's Cathedral.

The demonstrators, who are campaigning against corporate greed, have been occupying the central London site since 15 October.

The corporation sought a possession order after the Occupy London group ignored an order to clear its tents from the public highway.

Occupy London will appeal in the Court of Appeal on Thursday.

Stuart Fraser, the City of London Corporation's policy chairman, told the BBC the ruling had wider implications.
