    France will vote to elect its next president in less than a week.

    The far-right candidate Marine Le Pen is counting on her traditional base on the southeast coast, as well as former leftist working-class voters hit hard by de-industrialisation in the north.

    But her party's latest recruits are right-wing youth, attracted by populist, anti-immigrant websites.
