There are ongoing warnings for Britons to be aware of if visiting France


The FCO stated: "Protests by farmers have taken place across France. Since January, action has included blocking roads and delaying traffic.

"Monitor the media, avoid protests, expect delays on some major roads and follow the advice of the authorities."

This comes as visitors in France are urged to be vigilant as a severe terrorism warning remains.

The FCO added: "Following a fatal attack in Arras, northern France, on 13 October, France has raised its national threat level to the highest level (‘Emergency Attack Level’).

"This threat level is described as ‘maximum vigilance and protection in the event of an imminent threat of a terrorist act or in the immediate aftermath of an attack’."

It added evacuations could take place in crowded spaces such as airports, public transport stations, tourist spots, sports venues, schools, places of worship and large commercial centres.

"Stay alert, be prepared for heightened security checks and follow the advice of local authorities," it added.

"Terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks in France."
