Several people have died and more have been injured after a terror attack which saw a lorry plough into pedestrians in Stockholm.

Police issued an image of a man they want to trace in connection with the outrage in a busy shopping district in the centre of the Swedish capital.

Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said the incident appeared to have been “a terror attack” as p olice said the driver of the truck had fled.

Despite earlier reports and pictures on social media, a police spokesman said there had been no arrests, adding: “For the moment police are searching for a person or persons.”
