Thousands of people across Hong Kong rushed to snap up the final edition of the pro-democracy newspaper Apple Daily, which has closed its doors after 26 years.

Supporters braved heavy rain to gather outside its offices where a million copies were being printed.

The publication decided to shut down after its reports were accused of breaching a national security law, leading to a freeze on company assets.

The closure is seen as a blow to press freedom under the pressure of Beijing.
