Two people have surrendered in the search for the driver of a car that tried to crash barricades near the Tour de France finish line.

One of the car's occupants was in hospital after police opened fire on Sunday morning.

Police found the car battered by bullets near the Place de la Concorde.

The driver is believed to be a 17-year-old boy without a driving licence. A woman was also injured in the crash.

Paris is on alert following attacks in January by Islamic extremists on satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo and a kosher supermarket left 20 people dead, including the three attackers.
