The tents are empty for a reason, says protester

Police in London say thermal imaging cameras show most of the 142 tents outside St Paul's were not used overnight.

The Cathedral closed its doors on Friday highlighting health and safety concerns because of the anti-capitalist camp.

Samuel Carlisle is one of the Occupy The London Stock Exchange protesters. He told Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire that the tents were empty for a reason.
