    Police Fire At Car At Tour De France Barriers


    Police have opened fire on a car which tried to crash through barriers set up for the final stage of the Tour de France in Paris.

    The car escaped with its two occupants apparently unharmed after coming under fire in the Place de la Concorde.

    Hundreds of thousands of people gather in the Place de la Concorde and the Champs Elysees for the final leg of the Tour de France.

    The race is due to arrive there later in the day.

    Police official Luc Poignant said officers were finishing setting up the barricades for the race when the car tried to crash through the barriers.

    Officers opened fire on the car, which ultimately drove away.

    Poignant told the BFM television network that no officers were injured.

    The final stage of the Tour de France is due to begin at 3.35pm, leaving from Sevres, a town southwest of Paris.

    The riders are then due to arrive in the French capital at around 4.30pm and do 10 laps around the Champs-Elysees before finishing at Place de la Concorde at about 6pm.

    I think they officially stated that at the end it didn't was a terrorist act.

    Luckily the last day of the Tour end as expected. A nice season for Frome!
