There are distressing pictures in this report.

Two men are in hospital, one in a critical condition after a surge in violence across Hong Kong.

One was shot by police at a blockaded junction – while another was set on fire after he got into an argument with demonstrators.

Hong Kong’s leader Carrie Lam warned she would ‘spare no effort’ to bring the protests to an end – describing the rioters as ‘enemies of the people’.
