After the demos, the sit-in begins – in London and beyond
Tim Hume and Kunal Dutta
It was a chilly night on the pavements around St Paul's Cathedral. But for the few hundred who stayed on after Saturday's main protest, the real demonstration is only just beginning. They are here, they say, for long haul.
In scenes resembling New York's Occupy Wall Street event, protesters in London reaffirmed their long-term ambitions by setting up a makeshift camp with kitchen, temporary toilets, a media centre and more than 75 tents.
Between 200 and 300 activists remained at the St Paul's camp last night, with Scotland Yard describing the mood as "calm".
