FCO warns against school trips to France

UK school trips to France are being cancelled on the advice of the French government.

This follows the French ministry of education warning against foreign school groups travelling to the country.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office updated its travel advice to recommend that British schools planning to take groups to France between now and November 22 follow the French education ministry’s advice not to travel.

However, school trips already under way in France may continue as originally planned.

It also emerged that Airbnb called an early end to a property conference it was hosting in France as the scale of Friday’s terrorist massacre in Paris became clear.

Company co-founder, Brian Chesky, was reported by the Times as saying: “Like many we were jittery … stepping on the plane, it was clear that everyone was just happy to be returning home.”

It also emerged that French police foiled a further attack on Paris’s business district and airport after a dawn raid in the French capital yesterday.
