'Jesus would have stood with protesters... and talked to bankers'

The city of London is preparing legal action to try to evict the protesters camped around St Paul's Cathedral. And in the Cathedral itself - where services have resumed after its closure - there is division about what to do.

Dr Giles Fraser, now serving out his notice as canon chancellor, resigned because he said he found the idea of violence in the name of the church unacceptable.
