Parisians were seen enjoying the sun and the warm spring temperatures at some of the French capital's most famous landmarks on Sunday amid France's COVID-19 lockdown.

Footage filmed at Sacre Coeur shows local walking up the stairs leading to the church as well as a group of police officers performing ID checks. People walking and jogging by the Seine were also recorded.
