Millions take to the streets of France in protest

Millions have taken to the streets of France as part of a nationwide demonstration against the government's handling of the economic crisis.

Unions claimed the number protesting was near three million while police admitted the figure was expected to beat the two million who took part in similar protests at the end of January.

Schools, courts, post offices, universities and even hospitals were closed, with public transport severely disrupted, as up to 200 marches were organised to protest against President Nicolas Sarkozy's approach to the global financial crisis.
