Protesting opposition lawmakers in Hong Kong disrupted leader Carrie Lam's "state of the union" address, forcing her to leave the chamber.

It was the first time a Hong Kong chief executive had been unable to deliver a policy address in the chamber.

Several pro-democracy legislators waved placards and chanted slogans, while standing on desks.

Hong Kong has been gripped by anti-government protests in recent weeks.
