Yesterday my children were in tears,"the 62-year-old said, describing the situation as"a nightmare".Hulot, a TV star who has forged a three-decade career as an environmental campaigner, won swift support from the presidency."As he has not been charged, there is no reason why he should resign,"Macron's office said. "I was questioned at my own request and investigators very quickly concluded that there was nothing suggesting the case should be followed up," Hulot said.
