At least one Briton has been injured in the terrorist attack in Nice, new Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said.
"The only information I have is that there is one UK national who is injured but it is still too early to say at the moment," Johnson said.
He described the attack as "appalling" and said it represented the "continuing threat" to Europe from terrorism.
He confirmed there would be meetings later to discuss the implications for the UK and that he would speak to his French counterpart.

The French foreign minister has accused Boris Johnson, now his counterpart in the UK, of lying "a lot" while he was a leader for the Leave campaign.
"I don't have any doubt about Boris Johnson," Jean-Marc Ayrault said during an interview with French radio Europe 1.
"You know his style and his methods. He lied a lot during the [referendum] campaign."
The two men have met in the past when both were mayors - Mr Ayrault as mayor on Nantes and Mr Johnson as mayor of London.
Alex Salmond has dismissed Boris Johnson as a "court jester" but said the real "test" will be whether Theresa May allows cabinet members with more gravitas to shape her policies.
"The real issue is this - are the serious politicians ... going to be playing second fiddle to someone like Boris Johnson," the former SNP leader told ITV News.
"Has she [Prime Minister May] just got Boris Johnson to give everyone a laugh, or is she going to let him, I don't know, give away the Channel Islands by mistake in negotiations."
Mr Salmond, who is the SNP's spokesperson on foreign affairs, said that with Mr Johnson as foreign minister "everyone is going to have a giggle at our expense", but added that given recent political manouvering "perhaps that's not a bad thing".
This is the moment that a US state department official struggled to regain his composure after learning that Boris Johnson had been appointed as the new British foreign secretary.
Mark Toner, deputy spokesman for the equivalent to the UK foreign office, appeared to struggle not to laugh as he was told the news during a briefing with journalists.
After getting his facial gymnastics under control, he said that the US would "always be able to work with the British" as the relationship "goes beyond personalities".
Hardly a ringing endorsement for Mr Johnson.
John Kerry has confirmed he spoke to newly appointed Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson this morning and said the US-UK special relationship is "as essential as ever".
The US Secretary of State also stressed US support for a "sensible and measured approach" to Brexit.
