France braces for 'ULTRA-VIOLENT' protests, with 89,000 cops on the streets and shops boarded up as demonstrators vent fury at Macron's reforms despite the President caving in to Yellow Vest demands

France is bracing for 'ultra-violent' protests' this weekend with 89,000 police on the streets and shops boarded up as demonstrators vent their fury at President Emmanuel Macron's reforms.

A dozen armoured cars equipped with machine guns will also patrol parts of Paris as the French government attempts to avoid urban warfare tomorrow amid fears thousands will bring chaos to the streets.

The Yellow Vests – fuel price protesters named after their high visibility jackets – will be joined by groups from the far-Right and the hard-Left in a mass show of anger against Macron's administration on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Eiffel Tower will be closed, 8,000 police officers will be deployed in the French capital alone and 14 'high-risk' sectors will be cleared out - including one containing the world-renowned and glitzy Champs-Elysees avenue.

This afternoon, Interior minister Christophe Castaner warned 'some ultra-violent people want to take part' in the riots. At the height of the festive shopping season, many Paris store owners were boarding up their shop fronts.
