Unidentified drones have flown over the Eiffel Tower and key Paris landmarks for a second night running, further baffling French authorities.

Officials are investigating the mysterious phenomenon at a time of high security across the country.

Police sighted one or more drones in five instances buzzing in the Paris sky last night, from 11.30pm to 2am local time.

An inquiry was launched after drones, which are banned over Paris, were also spotted on Monday night.

Paris prosecutors’ spokeswoman Agnes Thibault-Lecuivre says an unidentified flying object was first seen near the Gare de l’Est train station, with sightings continuing over the Paris Opera, then on to the Tuileries gardens, past the Eiffel Tower and then south past the Montparnasse Tower.
