    Man Dumps Tonnes Of Manure Outside French Parliament In Protest At President Hollande

    It's not been an easy few days for the French President.

    Earlier today a man dumped several tonnes of horse manure outside the Palais Bourbon, the home of France's lower legislative chamber.

    He turned up in a lorry emblazoned with the words: "Out with Hollande and all politicians. Long Live the 6th Republic".

    The French authorities brought in a special police digger – presumably kept on standby for such eventualities – to start clearing the manure away.

    This took them a while.
