Watch live as protesters march in Paris, France on the 10th day of nationwide strikes on Tuesday 28 March.

Demonstrations continue over Emmanuel Macron’s divisive new pension reform bill, which includes a provision to raise the legal age of retirement from 62 to 64.

Angry protests have rocked the nation in recent weeks, with some demonstrators blocking airports and railway stations and even setting fire to Bordeaux’s city hall.

Just yesterday, members of France’s CGT union blocked the entrance of the Louvre museum in Paris as hundreds of demonstrators, many carrying flags, gathered together.

The monarch had been scheduled to arrive on Sunday, making the trip to celebrate France and Britain’s renewed friendship.
