A woman has described the moment a British man was shot in front of her in the attack on the Bataclan venue.

Helen Wilson has told The Telegraph how how she tried to keep Nick Alexander alive as they lay on the ground of the concert hall.

Miss Wilson said five or six men came in armed with machine guns and started shooting indiscriminately.

Miss Wilson, speaking from her hospital bed, said she tried to give him mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and held him in her arms as he struggled for his life.

Miss Wilson was shot in both thighs and was taken to Saint-Antoine hospital in Paris.

Friends and family of Mr Alexander, 36, have launched a campaign to try and find him.
