Minor scuffles broke out between riot police and Yellow Vest protesters as the latter tried to enter Toulouse city centre on Saturday.

Footage from outside the Capitole place, the historic city centre, shows a police woman falling on the ground and being hit by a protester who was later arrested. Tear gas was also fired by the police as more than 1,000 protesters carrying banners and chanting slogans marched onto the streets for the 47th time.

Since the beginning of the protests last November, tens of thousands have joined demonstrations across France over a variety of grievances, ranging from the rise in fuel prices to income inequality. The rallies then turned into a wider movement against President Emmanuel Macron's policies.
