The robbers then put the powdered gold, worth €1.5m ($1.6m; £1.3m), into their getaway car, locking two security guards in the back of the van and setting fire to their other vehicle.

The two guards were rescued by police after a tip-off from a witness. The thieves fled immediately, leaving the fire to spread and gut nearby vehicles before it was put out by firefighters. The robbery took place on the A6 motorway, which connects Lyon to Paris. Police said they are hunting for the perpetrators.
