LONDON (AP) -- The Bishop of London says anti-capitalist demonstrators camped outside the city's iconic St. Paul's Cathedral
have said they'll likely move on.

Both the church and city officials have launched legal action to seek to clear the scores of tents from a pedestrian square and footpath outside the cathedral.

London's Anglican Bishop Richard Chartres held talks Sunday with
demonstrators, who were inspired by New York's Occupy Wall Street
movement. He told Sky News television that the protesters said they
wouldn't be there "forever."

St. Paul's Cathedral reopened Friday after being closed for a week on health and safety grounds, the first time the 300-year-old church had closed since German planes bombed the city during World War II.
