New clashes have erupted outside city hall in the Ukrainian capital Kiev after a night of scuffles as police tried to dislodge protesters.

Live feeds from the protests are showing protesters using hoses to fire icy water back at the police

But more demonstrators have joined the protest in response to an opposition call for solidarity.

The government's decision to withdraw from a free-trade deal with the EU last month sparked huge street rallies.
