    In the first round of voting in the presidential election, there were 56 villages across France where not a single vote was cast for Marine Le Pen.

    One of them was the Somme, within Le Pen's stronghold in the north.

    One of the biggest concerns for the farmers is the idea of leaving the financial safety nets provided by the European Union.

    Al Jazeera's David Chater reports from the Somme.
