Flights at a major French airport were halted on Monday as police arrested a man who smashed his car through the perimeter fence and reached the runway.

Officers chased and reportedly shot at a silver-grey Mercedes that had driven for several miles up the wrong way of a nearby motorway, causing several accidents. The car rammed through a toll booth before forcing its way into the Saint-Exupéry airport at Lyon.

A witness filmed the car bouncing over an embankment before coming to a halt. The driver ran off, chased by police vehicles. Following the security breach on Monday, the airport was immediately closed and flights halted.
