Europe Editor and Presenter

Hundreds of thousands of people have taken to the streets across France in the twelfth day of protests against President Macron’s unpopular pension reforms – which would raise the minimum retirement age to 64.

A ruling is expected tomorrow on whether the proposals are constitutional.

Some of the protests turned violent as activists clashed with police outside luxury department stores.
