French police have forcibly lifted a blockade on the main refinery supplying fuel to Paris as polls show the majority of French people support the strikes despite petrol shortages on the eve of national holidays.

Riot police descended on the depot at Grandpuit last night, and at least one person was injured in scuffles which broke out as officers cleared striking workers from the area.
