LONDON - Officials attached legal notices to the tents of anti-capitalist protesters in London's financial district on Wednesday, giving them 24 hours to end a demonstration that has shaken the Church of England and upset senior politicians.

The letters ordered them to leave the area outside St Paul's Cathedral by 1800 GMT on Thursday or face action in the High Court to end a month-long protest inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement. Police in New York evicted protesters from their camp in a park near Wall Street on Tuesday.

The City of London Corporation, which administers the financial district, said talks aimed at setting a departure date had failed and it was time for the campers to go home.

"We have served them a legal notice," a City of London spokesman said. "We are informing them and giving them 24 hours to move their tents from the highway."
