    French far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen upstaged her rival, Emmanuel Macron, in a surprise visit to a factory threatened with closure.

    Macron was meeting workers' representatives away from the factory in his hometown of Amiens. Then Le Pen turned up unannounced and met the workers themselves.
