Max in the Mountains

The mayor is keener than she seems but her transport deputy kept a stony silence during the launch of the all-electric Formula E race in Paris. More later. In the meantime, watch the impressive video animation of the circuit around Les Invalides below.

Also, Formula One star Max Verstappen in downhill stunt in Kitzbuhel. And, another roundup of the latest from Calais.

Toro Rosso Formula 1 star Max Verstappen will attempt an ‘extremely ambitious’ downhill stunt on a Kitzbuhel ski slope on Thursday. The 18-year old Dutchman will pilot a specially adapted 2011 championship winning Red Bull RB7 - sporting studded tyres, a raised ride height and interim ‘snow livery’ featuring new sponsors TAG Heuer and Puma - on the Streif ski course in Hahnenkamm, more than 1600m high up in the Austrian Alps. The action kicks off at 11:00CET. See more.

roundup: CALAIS MIGRANT CRISIS. Truck driver @YouAreParsons reported early yesterday morning there was debris on the sliproad after migrants had apparently tried to block the motorway exit at Eurotunnel. On Monday, a coach party of school children returning from Italy was ‘pelted with rocks’ on the way through Calais according to the Daily Express. A window was smashed and one child suffered an epileptic fit. Last night, La Voix du Nord said Eurotunnel has flooded the land around the terminal to form a natural barrier for migrants attempting to reach the site. Finally, yesterday’s ‘medical emergency’ on board a DFDS ferry returning from Calais was due to the discovery of nine stowaway migrants, including two children says Kent Online. An ambulance attended when the ship docked at Dover but no injuries were reported.
