France’s National Front party has expelled its founder Jean-Marie Le Pen.

It follows a high-profile feud with his daughter and party leader Marine.

The party said 87-year-old Mr Le Pen would be "notified shortly" of the decision.

It came after the FN's executive committee questioned him for hours and voted to exclude him over inflammatory comments that had proved too much for his daughter, pushing him out of a party he led for close to four decades.
