Hong Kong Heritage marks the 100th anniversary of the Gresson Street Affray - when five police officers were shot dead by a gang of robbers in a siege in Wan Chai. One of those killed was the Mortimor O' Sullivan, the great uncle of Patricia O' Sullivan, the author of Policing Hong Kong - An Irish History. She and Annemarie take a trip to Gresson Street.
