TOURISTS driving through France at night were warned yesterday to be on guard after a British family was robbed by an armed gang near Lyon. Simon and Paula Hudnott's car was rammed from behind, then driven away by three men. It was found later stripped of its contents.

Lyon police have advised motorists with foreign number plates to be extra vigilant on the roads after midnight. The attack on the Hudnotts, of Shepperton, Surrey, was one of a dozen in recent weeks.
