Footage has emerged from Hong Kong which shows police officers accidentally tear-gassing themselves, apparently forgetting about the effects of downwind gusts.

Officers had been trying to tear-gas protesters in the northwest town of Sheung Wan. However, this quite literally blew back in their faces forcing also their own colleagues to retreat after tear-gassing them.
