“This violent society cannot continue in the years to come. It must be stopped,” Interior Minister Gerard Collomb told Europe 1 radio on Tuesday, calling the attacks against police “unacceptable”.

Officers had been called to clear a crowd of 300 or 400 people attempting to see in 2018 at a warehouse party in Champigny-sur-Marne.

They fired tear gas after “a group of particularly violent individuals laid into the police,” local security chief Jean-Yves Oses said, with revellers beating and kicking two officers.

Videos of the policewoman writhing on the floor as she is kicked by the crowd, as well as revellers flipping over a car, have gone viral on social media.
