Did you miss the early morning news? We have concocted a recap to help you see more clearly.
In one night, the town of Agen in Lot-et-Garonne found itself under water. There was the equivalent of two months of precipitation in the space of three hours. Torrential rains hit the city on Wednesday evening, causing flooding in several downtown streets, emergency and weather services said. According to the prefecture, joined by 20 minutes, no dead or injured are to be deplored at midnight.
The ax fell and finally rather gently to sanction the serious incidents during the match between Nice and Marseille on August 22. The disciplinary committee of the Professional Football League (LFP) decided on Wednesday that the match would be replayed on neutral ground and behind closed doors. It also inflicted on Nice a withdrawal of two points in the standings, one of which was suspended. The Riviera club will also have to play three games behind closed doors in total, including the one to be played again against OM and the one already served against Bordeaux as part of the precautionary measures taken just after the incidents. On the player side, OM defender Alvaro Gonzalez has been suspended for two firm matches. Dimitri Payet has received a suspended match suspension.
There was a lot of talk about degrowth, Wednesday evening, during the second public debate broadcast on LCI between the candidates for the ecological primary. Eric Piolle, Delphine Batho, Yannick Jadot, Sandrine Rousseau and Jean-Marc Governatori have in turn tried to show their differences on the way of reading GDP figures and on the consequences of its evolution on ecology. The five protagonists, which registered voters will be able to decide in the first round between September 16 and 19, will debate again on Friday. Voters will then choose between the finalists from September 25 to 28.
