A French high-speed train travelling from Marseille to Nice has been stopped in its tracks by a group of youths.

The gang lit flares and blocked the line forcing the driver to bring the locomotive to a halt.

The incident happened close to Bel Air to the north of Marseille, an area that poses a security concern, according to French police.
