The drama began to unfold as more than a dozen police cars and a helicopter chased the fugitive up the wrong side of a motorway before he broke through security barriers at the busy airport.

Still chased by police, he then crashed through two glass doors at the airport's Terminal 1 to drive onto the runways, authorities said.

All flights in and out of Lyon Saint-Exupery airport were temporarily suspended.

Police sources told French media that the situation on the runway was "complicated".

Video posted to social media and broadcast on French TV shows the closing moments of a dramatic chase scene, where a white auto speeds past the runway, with police in pursuit. The driver then jumped out while the vehicle was still rolling and sprinted off on foot, pursued by a police van.

Local media identified the vehicle as a grey Mercedes with a foreign registration.The driver, who was reportedly responsible for a lot of damage, was arrested.

Another eyewitness told BFM TV how he saw the auto "drive through an automatic gate at the terminal, making a deafening sound in the process".
