Pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong were given an hour to pack up their belongings before being cleared from the front of the territory’s Legislative Council building.

Demonstrators said they’d leave after the rejection of Beijing-backed political reforms last week.

Dozens of people had camped there since the Occupy Movement protests late last year.

One man who refused to leave was escorted from the area.

The reforms would have given all residents the right to vote for the position of chief executive but only after candidates had been vetted by the Chinese government.

Most pro-government politicians staged a walkout as the vote took place last Thursday.
