Fuel warning to bank holiday drivers amid French protests

British travellers have been advised to fill up with petrol or diesel in the UK before holidaying on the continent across the bank holiday weekend after strike action in France led to fuel shortages.

The dispute over labour reforms has led to blockades in French towns, cities, on motorways and bridges, as well as disruption of the nation's rail and air travel.

At least 77 people were arrested in violent clashes between protesters and police in Paris and other cities during Thursday's nationwide day of industrial action.
