Protestors occupied a squat

Tough new US-style tactics are being used by police to thwart the attempts of anti-capitalist protestors attempting to set up squats in the City of London.

A lightning raid was executed by officers just hours after Occupy London activists took over a former Midland Bank building in the Square Mile.

Officers swooped on the building in central London, just yards from police headquarters.

Four people were arrested and 25 evicted from the premises.
