French elections: Sarkozy trails behind Hollande

The first round of the French Presidential election takes place in a matter of days, with President Sarkozy trailing behind the Socialist Party's, Francois Hollande in the latest polls.

The polls also predict a low turnout in the young and those in deprived suburbs.

Francois Hollande has been door-to-door campaigning to gain votes and President Sarkozy has also been out in the suburbs.

Christian Fraser reports from Paris.
