Tear gas and violence as police clash with protesters in central Paris

Thousands of climate activists joined by a few hundred "yellow vests" protesters in Paris to demand the French government take greater action on climate change and measures for social justice.

The demonstration began peacefully with some people dressed in costumes while others carried signs and effigies, all marching to the beat of percussion bands.

The government deployed a massive police presence as it feared yellow vest supporters and other activists, including "black bloc" anarchists, would take advantage of authorised protests over climate change and pension reform.
