Thousands of 'Yellow Vest' protesters clashed with police in Paris streets on Saturday.

People were knocked down by water cannons which, as well as teargas, were used to disperse the protesters.

Some of the demonstrators were seen arrested.

The 'Yellow Vest' protests entered the ninth week in a row. The movement emerged after French President Emmanuel Macron announced hikes in fuel price taxes to encourage a transition towards greener energy.

The French government have now suspended the prices hikes, however, protests have continued.
