1 min

The reports are as yet unconfirmed but video footage from the scene showed what appeared to be a large fire and crowds of people fleeing the scene.

French President Francois Hollande is reportedly on his way to Paris.


It comes after at least 60 people are feared dead after a truck ploughed into large crowds celebrating Bastille Day in Nice.

There are no indications at this time that it is a terror related incident and police have stressed there is nothing to worry about.
