Pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong blocked a second major thoroughfare, this time across the harbour, after police had earlier used tear gas to disperse huge crowds in the city's centre.

Around three thousand demonstrators blocked a major road in the city's congested Mongkok district in Kowloon, bringing traffic to a standstill and opening up a second significant flashpoint in the key financial hub.
