Four subway stations have been shut down in Hong Kong as authorities try and prevent anti-government protests.

However thousands of people still marched through the city's streets on Saturday.

They've continued to call for democracy and an end to police brutality.

Police have issued a court order to prevent people from demonstrating at the airport.

Meanwhile China has let go of a British consulate employee whose detention had fueled tensions.
