Lord Mayor's Show avoids anti-capitalist protesters

The Lord Mayor's Show passed off peacefully in London yesterday, despite the fear of disruption from anti-capitalist protesters.

Minor alterations were made to the route in the wake of the Occupy London protests and the blessing of new Lord Mayor, David Wootton, was moved to another part of St Paul's Cathedral, away from the protest camp. Floats and military bands led the procession in front of thousands of people who lined the three-mile route.
