Thousands continue to rampage across Paris as gay marriage protest enters second day of violence

Paris has been hit with a second day of riots as thousands hit the streets to protest against the introduction of gay marriage in France.

Since yesterday, 293 people have been arrested, with 231 of those charged with public order offences.

Most of the trouble started on Sunday night, following a mass rally in the centre of the city which attracted around 150,000 people.
