St Paul’s Cathedral in London has closed to visitors for the first time since World War II.
(The decision was taken to close because of protestors in the area. It is the only the second time Sunday services have been cancelled – the other time was during World War II, when the cathedral was closed in 1941 for four days during the Blitz. The protestors had attempted to set up camp outside the London Stock Exchange, but they were prevented. After all, the great cathedral of capitalism mustn’t be inconvenienced.)
