Kevin Harris left the promenade just minutes before the attack was launched.

"After a minute of being back in my room, I heard some gunshots went out on to my terrace and saw this dreadful scene," he told Good Morning Britain.

"Lots of bodies lying in the middle of the promenade...everybody was dead."

He said officials began using towels from a nearby beach club to cover the bodies of those who died.
