Gunfire was heard at the Corte Ingles store in the area after police announced a ‘massive crash’ in Las Ramblas.

Officers were said to have negotiated with an attacker in a Turkish restaurant where hostages were being held.

A second van was found parked in the town of Vic some 50 miles north of Barcelona after police said it could have been used as a getaway vehicle.

The civil guard has said the van used in the attack was rented by Oukabir in the town of Santa Perpetua de la Mogada.
