Birmingham is united with Berlin today and our thoughts and sympathies are with victims, their families and everyone affected by last night’s attack.

We welcome a large number of our German friends to Birmingham at this time every year and today we stand with them and the people of Berlin.

We’ve opened a book of condolence in the Library of Birmingham and the library will be lit up in the colours of the German flag this evening.

And we’ve now also written to the Mayor of Berlin Michael Müller and the German Honorary Consul in Birmingham Mrs Kirin Kalsi expressing sympathy and solidarity from the people of Birmingham.

Witness: 'It was going at 40mph, it wasn't an accident'

A woman has told ITV News about the moment she witnessed a lorry plough through a Christmas market in Berlin.

Emma Rushton from Warwickshire was sitting in the market with a friend when the tragedy happened.

Describing the moment she saw the vehicle Emma said "it was going through at around 40 mph".

When asked if she believed it looked like it could have been an accident Emma said there was no way it could have "just veered off" the road.

"It wasn't an accident, there is no way it could have been there just by veering off the roads and it showed no signs of slowing down at all", she said.

Emma said after the lorry had driven through the market they saw people "holding their heads, there were pools of blood on the floor and there were people in the recovery position".
