A new dean for St Paul's

A new Dean of St Paul's has been appointed to replace the cleric who resigned over the anti-capitalist protest camp.

The Very Rev Dr David Ison, 57, Dean of Bradford, will take up the post in May. The Rt Rev Graeme Knowles resigned in October, after St Paul's was criticised for its handling of the Occupy London protest. The camp was cleared last week.
