Occupy loses legal fight over St Paul's eviction

LONDON (Reuters) - Anti-capitalism activists lost their legal fight against eviction from outside London's landmark St Paul's Cathedral on Wednesday after three judges turned down their appeal application, heralding the end of their four-month protest.

The defeat in London's Court of Appeal is likely to see the City of London Corporation, on whose land the activists have been camping, call in the bailiffs to remove dozens of tents and protesters inspired by the Occupy Wall Street protest.
