French authorities are investigating after a father reportedly held his family imprisoned inside their flat for at least a year.

The mother and four children, who are aged between 14 and 20 and are thought to have learning difficulties, were found in squalid conditions at St Nazaire on the Atlantic coast.

The father is now in a psychiatric hospital.
