Paul Kimmage's film crew robbed while on Tour duty
A film crew making a documentary with Sunday Independent Tour de France columnist Paul Kimmage was robbed as it covered the first stage of the race in Corsica yesterday.
Laptops and other equipment were taken from a van as the film crew from Wildfire Productions was covering the start of the race at Porte Vecchio on the island.
Paul Kimmage's daily video diary from Le Tour which began last week on independent.ie has already attracted a legion of fans.
And in today's Sunday Independent he writes his second provocative despatch from the 100th Tour de France.
