Pictures from the scene show several bodies under blankets and a long bloodied tyre mark leading to a dead dog, which still had its lead attached.

The streets of the city were turned into complete carnage after the attack as hundreds of people fled the violent attack.

Emergency crews were pictured frantically trying to help victims after witnesses say a large vehicle – which is thought to be stolen – drove into people.

Unconfirmed reports say three armed men jumped out of the truck with two shot dead by police.

Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said everything indicated the crash was a terrorist attack.

It comes after trucks were used in terror attacks in Nice and Berlin last year.

Footage from the scene shows hundreds of people fleeing in terror when the truck crashed into the shoppers at 1.53pm UK time.
