Charlie Derrick was at the Tesco Extra store this afternoon and described seeing the aftermath. She said, “I had just left the store and when I came out a lady ran by asking people to call the doctors.

“I saw a few police cars arriving at the scene, and then the staff began to barricade the doors of the store, asking people to exit through the entrance. They were closing the store.
