Hong Kong police criticise 'irresponsible' protesters

Hong Kong police have criticised "irresponsible and law-breaking" protesters for obstructing traffic and blocking supplies to government offices.

Spokesman Hui Chun-tak urged protesters to leave in an orderly fashion, but stressed the police would remain impartial and "exercise the greatest tolerance".

Criminals would take advantage of the crowds, he added, and the police would not be able to reach crime scenes.
