Cathedral and council bid to evict Occupy Bristol

Occupy Bristol protesters have been told legal action has begun to evict them from their protest camp.

The campaigners have been on College Green - owned by Bristol Cathedral - since 15 October 2011 and have built temporary shelters there. Read here for the full article.

The protesters are part of an international anti-poverty movement calling for a fairer society.

They have now been told by the cathedral that legal action has begun to move them from their camp.

A joint statement from Bristol Cathedral and Bristol City Council said the cathedral's Dean, the Very Reverend David Hoyle, had met a number of people currently occupying the site and issued a final plea to them to clear it.

Dr Hoyle said: "Whilst we are committed to listening to the Occupy Movement, we believe it is now time that this stage in their protest came to an end so that a wider community can once again benefit from access to College Green."
