France shootings: Investigators saw 'horrible' murder scene

Public prosecutor Eric Maillaud has described the ''horrible'' scene in which four people were shot dead in France.

A mother, father and grandmother were found dead in a British-registered car. A cyclist was also found dead nearby.

An eight-year-old girl was taken to hospital with head injuries and a gunshot wound. A four-year-old girl was discovered alive, having hidden under one of the bodies for several hours.

Speaking at a news conference, Mr Maillaud described how a British cyclist, also a former member of the RAF, stumbled upon the scene.
