In pictures: Occupy protesters descend on Pearse Street Garda station

The protesters, whose camp outside the Central Bank was cleared this morning, were demanding that their belongings be returned.

PROTESTERS FROM THE Occupy Dame Street movement descended on Pearse Street Garda station in Dublin tonight.

Around 50 protesters staged a protest outside the Garda station having earlier assembled outside the Central Bank on Dame Street where their camp had been taken apart by gardaí earlier this morning.

The protesters were believed to be at the station to request their belongings back. Earlier those who had been camped outside the Central Bank since last October claimed that all their belongings had been taken by Gardaí who moved in at 3am this morning to clear the camp.

Gardaí said tonight there had been no arrests and that the protest has now moved back towards the Central Bank. Gardaí, 40 of whom surrounded Pearse Street station, are following the protesters and there are traffic restrictions in the area.

Here are a selection of photos from the earlier protest:
