Police and protesters in Hong Kong have scuffled for a second night as a group of demonstrators tried to re-occupy a main road near government buildings.

Police used pepper spray to try and clear the area and arrested two people they said were obstructing officers.

The unrest comes after more serious clashes on Wednesday during which some police officers were filmed beating and kicking an unarmed protester.

Police are investigating the incident, which has sparked public outrage.

The US has called for a "swift, transparent, and complete investigation".
