Violence erupted in Paris today as Yellow Vest protesters calling for French President Emmanuel Macron to resign took to the streets for the eighteenth Saturday in a row.

Teargas and baton charged were used by riot police on a so-called ‘Act XVIII’ Day of Rage organised by the Yellow Vest movement.

Fighting broke out on the Champs Elysee, the most famous avenue in the French capital, by 11am, when there had already been 25 arrests.

‘Gangs are targeting police, and carrying out numerous acts of vandalism,’ said an officer at the scene.

‘Fires are being lit, including in cars. Thousands are arriving all over the city, and we are already extremely stretched.’

Protests were not just organised by the Yellow Vests – who are named after their high visibility motoring jackets – but by climate change protesters.
