There has been fresh disruption at Hong Kong Airport today as protesters moved to disrupt transport links to the airport.

This weekend marks the 13th weekend in a row of major pro-democracy demonstrations in Hong Kong.

Activists have been focusing on the airport again today, after authorities last month opted to suspend flight operations during protests at the terminals.

Airport Express train services to the airport have been suspended amid efforts to block traffic from accessing the site, with reports of some protesters throwing objects on the track.

Local media reported travelers, airline crew and protesters were making their way to the airport on foot due to gridlock on access roads.

Responding to the disruption, Hong Kong Police Force warned they were planning to conduct a "dispersal operation".
