Paris 'car-free' day draws crowds to Champs-Elysees
Crowds of pedestrians and cyclists have converged on the Champs-Elysees in Paris as the city holds a "car-free" day.
The initiative involves a ban on motor vehicles in the centre of the city.
The ban comes ahead of the city's hosting of the United Nations Climate Conference, which takes place in Paris from 30 November.
Hugh Schofield strolled along the Champs-Elysees to see what local people think of the ban.
