A visit to the traditional French boulangerie could be under threat as bakers throughout France are starting to offer baguettes for sale via digital vending machines.

Jean-Louis Hecht, a baker from Hombourg-Haut in north-east France has opened one in his home town and another in Paris, both next to his bakeries. As this video from the AP shows, freshly baked baguettes are now available via digital screens at the touch of a button - and 24 hours a day, so you don't have to make sure you're there by 8am in case they run out.
