Split in occupation campers

11:35 am on 13 December 2011

A split has formed in the Occupy Wellington group with some members deciding to stay camped in Civic Square, despite the group announcing on Monday it would leave.

About 15 have decided to stay on, while the remainder of the group are looking to relocate their activities to indoor premises.

About 70 protesters were earlier camped in tents during the two-month event.

Wellington City Council says it is bemused by the split.
