BARROW MP John Woodcock was celebrating with the crowds in Nice last night, just before the terror attack that has killed at least 84 people. 

Mr Woodcock posted on his Twitter account that he had been on the promenade last night, before a suspected terrorist drove a truck through the crowds.

The attack began after the end of a firework display on the seafront, at the end of Bastille Day.


The driver reportedly drove for 1.2 miles on the Promenade des Anglais at 11pm local time, before being shot dead by police.

Pictures and video posted to social media showed people fleeing from the scene in fear.

President Francois Hollande said the attack was of an 'undeniable terrorist nature'.

He also said that the State of Emergency imposed last year after the attack in Paris would be extended to July 26.
