British Prime Minister Theresa May is to face a vote of no-confidence in her own parilamentary party this evening, after Tory rebels mustered enough letters from Conservative MPs supporting the move. May faces a revolt over her Brexit deal and postponed a vote on it in parliament this week, saying it was clear she would not win majority support for it.

In this week's Arts in France, RFI's Rosslyn Hyams visits  the Abbey St Riquier, a little-known mediaeval site in the north of France in the Somme valley, which has a very significant place in French history. One of its Abbots from the 9th century, Nithard, whose remains were recently re-discovered, can be seen at the Abbey, while it also caters for more contemporary tastes.

Abbey St Riquier now also offers exhibitions dedicated to reading and writing - digitally of course - and there is a number of temporary exhibitions currently on display. One of them consists of collages, paintings and book illustrations by Titus-Carmel, as well as photographic and digital audio-visual exhibits devised by Alain Fleischer.
