Anti-capitalism protesters occupied a square in Finsbury over the weekend.
It’s the second makeshift campsite to be set up by the activists who have been pitched up outside St Paul’s Cathedral for more than a week, forcing the iconic landmark to close due to health and safety concerns.
A group of the Occupy London demonstrators marched from the original site to Finsbury Square holding placards on Saturday.
Organisers have said the second site was needed to alleviate pressure at the crowded camp outside St Paul’s.
