Thousands of people have taken advantage of a move by the authorities in Paris to close the famous Champs Elysees thoroughfare to traffic.

Enthusiastic crowds strolled among the shops and cafes of the eight-lane avenue, which is normally choked with cars, trucks and motorbikes.

The car-free day is being repeated on the first Sunday of each month.

It is the brainchild of Mayor Anne Hidalgo and is designed to lower excessively high air pollution.
