Fleeing the police, man takes refuge at French spy HQ
According to a police source, the hapless driver fled after being involved in a crash on Paris’s peripherique ring road on Friday, scaling a fence several metres (feet) high to get off the busy artery.
What he didn’t realise was that he had unwittingly climbed into the grounds of the General Directorate of External Security (DGSE), according to the Parisien newspaper which first reported the story.
He was immediately picked up and arrested.
Located on Boulevard Mortier in northeastern Paris, the ultra-secure site was featured in acclaimed French TV spy thriller “Le Bureau des Legendes”, which won international acclaim under the English title “The Bureau.”
