And anti-terror brigades set up after the 2015 attacks in Paris will be at every polling station as the public turns out en masse in the most controversial election in recent history.

French Interior Minister Matthias Fekl has also revealed that 50,000 police officers will be on patrol over fears extremists may plan a terror attack.

More than 230 people have been murdered and hundreds more injured in a variety of attacks over the past two years which prompted the country to declare a state of emergency.

Now a specialist military group made of of 10,000 soldiers known as Operation Sentinelle which was set up after the Paris Charlie Hebdo attacks of 2015 will join police to protect the public.

The Government has not declared any specific threat but referenced the recent Westminster and Stockholm terror attacks as evidence of the extremist threat.

A multi-million pound operation is set to get underway across the 67,000 polling stations in a bid to protect the public.
