A painting by 19th century French artist Edgar Degas worth hundreds of thousands of pounds has been found on a bus near Paris.
Degas's painting Les Choristes, or The Chorus Singers, dates back to 1877 and was stolen nine years ago from a museum in Marseilles.
The artwork was discovered in a luggage compartment of a bus after police were carrying out random checks at a highway rest area about 20 miles east of Paris.
