HK protests: 'The most photographed eviction in history'

Bailiffs backed by police in Hong Kong have started to pull down barriers put up by pro-democracy campaigners in a part of the city they have been occupying for more than two months.

A deadline for them to leave came and went earlier on Thursday but many of the protestors refused to go.

The number of protesters has dwindled to a few hundred from its peak of tens of thousands two months ago.

John Sudworth reports.
