Hong Kong's Legislative Council meeting has been adjourned after pro-democracy legislators repeatedly heckled the city's embattled leader, Carrie Lam, and several were dragged from the chamber for the second day in a row.

Lam, who is backed by China's government, was speaking on Thursday - a day after she was forced to suspend her annual policy address, which was delivered by video after pro-democracy legislators heckled her in the legislature.

Lam had been scheduled to give her policy address - in which she announced measures to tackle the city's chronic housing shortage - on Wednesday as the legislature opened its doors for the first time since the building was ransacked by masked protesters about three months ago.
