Activists who chained themselves to the pulpit of St Pauls have now cut themselves free with bolt-croppers, according to police.

The action came as the group marks the anniversary of its now-dismantled protest camp outside the cathedral.

Photos posted by the group on the internet showed four women around the pulpit with a sign saying: “Throw the money changers out of the temple.”

The Dean of St Paul’s, David Ison, said he was taking an evening prayer service when “four young women dressed in white” chained themselves to the structure.

“It will be a long cold night if they want to stay there,” he said. Other protesters unfurled a banner with a similar message outside the church.

A statement read by the protesters and posted online by Occupy accused cathedral authorities of neglecting their Christian duty by siding with the rich and powerful.

“In the fight for economic justice, Jesus threw the money changers out of the temple, but you invited them in and instead evicted us,” it said.
