Bailiffs have erected fences around an old bank building in central Liverpool where occupying protesters threaten to lock themselves inside the vault.

Anti-capitalism group The Love Activists were served with eviction notices earlier this week at the former Bank of England site on Castle Street.

Five people were arrested after police imposed a 48-hour dispersal zone around the building on Thursday evening.

The anti-homelessness group has been occupying the building since 1 April.

The Love Activists have set up a helpdesk for people on benefits, a clothes bank and a library.
