A drone has captured incredible footage of the Hong Kong protestors who on Sunday night, brought the city to a standstill.

The video shows the sheer scale of the pro-democracy protest which has seen residents clash with local police throughout the night.

The YouTube channel HK Apple Daily is also live streaming the protest as it moves into its second day with many residents choosing to sleep on the streets en masse.

The protests started after it was revealed that Beijing would be blocking democratic reforms to the semiautonomous city.

Riot police were quickly put on the streets, using tear gas in an effort to try and disperse the crowds. This hasn't worked with hundreds still on the streets the following morning.
