From First Up, 5:10 am on 6 August 2019

To Hong Kong, where protesters have taken to the streets for the fifth day in a row. Hundreds of flights have been cancelled as well as trains and roads shut down across the city in the biggest day of protests yet. People are striking across seven districts and they include teachers, aviation workers, finance employees and civil servants. The mass protests have been on-going every weekend for the past nine weeks. They began in June over a now-suspended extradition bill, but demands have evolved to include greater democracy and police accountability. Our reporter Craig Hoyle is there, and joins us now.
