Dean of St Paul's Cathedral quits over protests

By Bryony Jones, CNN

London (CNN) - The Dean of London's St Paul's Cathedral has resigned amid criticism of his handling of a large "Occupy" protest taking place on the church's doorstep.

The Right Reverend Graeme Knowles announced his decision on Monday, saying his position was "becoming untenable" following weeks of debate over the demonstrations.

St Paul's has come under fire after it said it would take legal action to try to remove around 200 tents from the square outside its main entrance.
