He went on: "People were lying on the street and then I heard that a lorry had been going at a very high-speed towards a shop, a big shop...it appeared that it drove into the shop."

Shelagh asked: "How quickly did it become obvious that this truck was in the wrong place, it wasn't an accident, it was intentional, was it? Was it obvious that it was intentional?"

Peter said: "For me, it was quite obvious that it was not an accident. That it was intentional."

Shelagh said: "Did you hear shots being fired? There are reports of shots being fired?"

Peter replied: "I spoke to people who said that they were shooting from the lorry, and people told me that they heard a lot of shots before the lorry entered the shop."
