A father and son who died on a walking trip in the French Alps have been named by the Foreign Office as Peter and Charlie Saunders.
A total of 200 athletes from the French Paralympic squad arrived at St Pancras international station ahead of Wednesday's opening ceremony.
Tributes have been pouring in for a London-born climber who was killed in an avalanche in the French Alps yesterday.
The Great Niece of Lt Pritchard, Janet Shell says today's funerals could be both exciting and distressing.
The funerals take place today for two WW1 soldiers killed in action almost 100 years ago and later identified by their remains.
Lieutenant John Harold Pritchard and Pte Christopher Douglas Elphick of The Honourable Artillery Company were killed on 15th May 1917 during an enemy attack near Bullecourt in France. Their remains were found in a field in 2009.
Lt Pritchard was identified by a silver identity bracelet and Pte Elphick by a signet ring bearing his initials.
– David Hudson, the headmaster of Charlie Saunders' school, the Royal Latin in Buckingham
(Charlie was) a talented and very motivated boy who made a huge impact on the lives of every one who knew him.
He was a popular boy and threw himself into school life with 100% effort.
Charlie loved a wide range of sports and especially the great outdoors.
He will be hugely missed and we send our thoughts and prayers to his family, especially his mother and sister, at this tragic time.
French Journalist Alexander Aucott told Daybreak that the damage caused to the pub in Lyon.
He said the Smoking Dog pub was subject to a "violent" attack, where windows were smashed, leaving bar stools and tables lying around "everywhere".
Three Tottenham fans have reportedly been taken to hospital, one with a head injury after the pub was attacked.

– Christian Radnege, Spurs fan
They came in making Nazi salutes. It was frightening. Rome was fresh in everyone's minds. Everyone realised this was serious.
They left and then we thought that was it, but five minutes later it started again.
The intruders did not get in to the bar because it was full of Spurs fans. There were drips of blood left in the bar. The owners barricaded the pub between the two waves of attacks.
In November last year, the President of the Italian Football Association apologised to the English FA following a "disgraceful attack" on Tottenham fans in Rome.
One eyewitness who did not want to be named, said:
There were 50 who attacked in the first wave and 25 in the second. It's a pretty scary thing when you're confronted by people doing Nazi salutes.
A lit flare was thrown through the window as well as the heavy weight, the kind that's used on terraces to hold down umbrellas. It was terrifying. I've never seen anything like it. They threw iron stools through the windows as well.
