Violence has once again broken out in Hong Kong after thousands of anti-government demonstrators attempted to march through the city, in defiance of a ban.

Protesters had gathered in the centre of the city for the demonstration which was approved by authorities - as long as participants stayed in one location. But the protest moved, in defiance of the ban on marching and of a prior police warning that they would stop anyone attempting to march.

Riot police fired tear gas at protesters and arrested several people.
