More than 280,000 people dressed in high-visibility jackets blocked roads across France in protest at rising taxes on diesel and petrol, which the government says are to fund eco-friendly projects and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

French President Emmanuel Macron said he will not abandon the fuel tax but he was open to ideas and revising how it was applied.

A movement known as the (gilets jaunes) “yellow vests”, staged demonstrations around in the country.

Roadblocks were set up to slow down traffic. Some motorway toll booths were taken over to let vehicles through.

Demonstrations have left 2 people dead, and more than 500 people injured
