Riot police in Hong Kong continue to surround the university campus, where fewer than 100 protesters continue to remain holed in.

The Polytechnic University, in the centre of the bustling Kowloon peninsula, is the last campus still occupied by activists during a week that saw violent clashes erupt between the protesters and police officers.

Some protesters have surrendered while others are attempting to find escape routes to avoid arrests.

Much of the campus is damaged, with rooms vandalised, windows shattered and rubbish piled up around the campus.
