As protesters continue to camp outside St Paul's Cathedral, there have been similar protests in other parts of the UK. The demonstration is an offshoot of the Occupy movement, which began on Wall Street, in New York.

In Bournemouth, protesters are camped in front of the town hall, while one of Brighton's parks has been taken over. There are tents in George Square in the centre of Glasgow. In Birmingham's Victoria Square, demonstrators remain encamped and there are also demonstrations in Bristol which have spread to nearby Bath.

Bristol and Bath

Media captionProtesters camped out in the centre of Bristol have called on the council to provide more facilities. The demonstrators have been protesting on College Green for nearly two weeks.


Media captionProtesters camped outside City Hall in Bradford have been told they must pack up their tents and leave. The Occupy Bradford Group arrived on Friday and say they have been inspired by the Occupy London protest and the Arab Spring uprisings in the Middle East.


Media captionA small protest in the centre of Birmingham has been going on for about a week. Occupy Birmingham protesters say they are campaigning against many issues ranging from inequality to corporate greed.


Media captionThe Occupy Glasgow protesters pitched their tents opposite the City Chambers on 15 October. A court move to evict them has been delayed.
