Demonstrators from the Occupy London movement stormed a building housing the diversified Anglo-Swiss mining giant Xstrata on Wednesday, police and protesters said.

About 60 protesters got inside Panton House, in the heart of the British capital's West End theatre district, Occupy London said.

Police said they were already making arrests.

"At approximately 3:50 pm (1550 GMT) a containment was put in place outside Panton House... to prevent disorder by a group of protestors outside the building," Scotland Yard said in a statement.

"Some protestors have entered the building and officers are in the process of making arrests for aggravated trespass."
