An eyewitness of the deadly attack in Nice has said there was no security when the lorry began ploughing into crowds.

"There was no security and it took firefighters close to half an hour to arrive on the scene," the man told Euronews.

"The truck was there on the promenade and then they shot the driver. The truck mounted the kerb, accelerating into the crowd as it ran over everyone on its way."
