Not long after the projections for the first round of the French presidential ballot were made public, clashes broke out in Paris.

It appeared the trouble was between mostly far-left protesters and police at the Place de la Bastille.

The protesters reacted with fury when news spread that Marine Le Pen had made it through to the run-off vote.

At least two people, including a teenage girl, are reported to have been injured.

Riot police fired tear gas to disperse the crowds.
