A 'Yellow Vests' protest turned violent in the French central city of Bourges on Saturday, as the movement took to the streets for the ninth week in a row across the country.

Clashes erupted between the protesters and the police, who fired teargas and used flashball weapons against the crowds, after the authorities warned that a "zero tolerance" approach would be used in the upcoming protests.

Benches, urban furniture and parking metres were removed earlier by the local authorities to avoid violence, while public buildings and gardens were closed and all gatherings were banned.
