Hong Kong's "Occupy Central" protesters have clashed with police early this morning as they tried to encircle the government headquarters.

Protesters say they wanted to occupy the road until later this morning to try to prevent government officials from getting to work.

Hong Kong Police have been trying to clear the protest sites across the city following a series of court orders.

There have been increasing calls in Hong Kong for the protesters to stop blocking the roads amid growing concerns over the impact on people's daily lives and the local economy.
