Eyewitnesses have described the horrific moment a lorry ploughed into a crowd of revellers celebrating Bastille Day this evening, killing at least 60 people.

An eyewitness said he saw the lorry driver slam his vehicle into a crowd of people watching the fireworks in the French resort city of Nice and then emerge shooting, killing even more bystanders.

In addition to an estimated 60 people dead a further 150 are believed to have been injured in the incident, although both numbers are likely to rise.

One eyewitness told BFM TV: 'Everyone was calling run, run, run there's an attack run, run, run. We heard some shots. We thought they were fireworks because it's the 14th of July.
