As it happened: Hong Kong protesters drop onto highway from footbridge on university campus and escape on motorcycles
- Protesters trapped inside Polytechnic University make several attempts to flee
- Tear gas fired in Jordan and Tsim Sha Tsui, as lunchtime protest returns to Central
Hundreds of masked radicals and police officers remain locked in a stand-off at a Hong Kong university following more than 24 hours of unprecedented clashes, which saw live rounds being fired at two locations.
After 8am, the mob decided collectively to leave the campus en masse, but were quickly met by rounds of tear gas fired by police at several entrances. Some managed to escape, while others were forced to retreat.
This is how it happened.
