France's far right National Front party has emerged victorious in the first round of voting in France's regional elections, securing nearly one in three votes and the biggest share in six out of France's 13 regions. The result is a blow to President Francois Hollande of the Socialist party, whose popularity had risen after last month's terror attacks in Paris. Henry Ridgwell reports.
