From the Foreign Office website: Updated information and advice following incidents in the Las Ramblas area of Barcelona, and Cambrils, near Salou:

The Spanish authorities have set up a helpline for people affected by the incidents - the number is 0034 93 214 21 24; addition of a link to information about support available if you've been affected.


UPDATE: 08:02AM: OFFICIAL: Catalan Police have made a third arrest. 

Will Geddes, MD, Corporate Protection Group has popped up on several news networks, BBC Breakfast and now on CNN, warns with returning jihadists':'We have bleak times ahead of us'





OVERNIGHT UPDATE: Friday 07:20AM BST: People of eighteen different nationalities are now said to have been injured or killed in recent attacks.

Several controlled explosions to be carried out later today (Friday)in Cambrils.

Local sources strongly suggesting a major terrorist bomb making factory uncovered.

Earlier Terrorist incident, house explosion, possibly gas, in Alcanar south west of Barcelona is now being actively linked to later Barcelona attack.

Terrorist incident in Cambrils (115 km south west of Barcelona) with several men, hours after the Barcelona attack, said to be wearing explosives belts engaged in shoot-out with Catalan Police.

Catalan Police shot and killed five. Local security services say 6 civilians hurt.1 Police officer hurt. 

Two arrests in connection with the Barcelona incident now confirmed.

Witness tells Spanish TV that Barcelona van was being driven at 80km per hour. Driver of the van is still on the run.

Update THURSDAY 20:15pm BST: Casualty figure now officially 90 to hospital. Suspect van confirmed as driven 'zig-zagging' at high speed down La Rambla.

Update 19:10 BST: Police say NO ONE is being held hostage 'in a bar or restaurant.'

Update 18:50 BST:  One suspect arrested and alive according to RTVE the Spanish broadcaster.


What is being termed a major terrorist incident is currently unfolding in Barcelona Spain. A van has been deliberately driven into pedestrians walking along pavements in La Rambla, seriously injuring many and killing at least thirteen  people, according to local sources. Official Police 'confirmed dead' figures are currently much lower at 1. 

This happened on a day, when in addition to many tourists in Barcelona, the Catalan capital is also playing host to six cruise ships and 10,000 extra visitors visiting the city centre from the nearby port.  

Police armed with machine guns are following two gunmen, who decamped to a Turkish restaurant on Barcelona's La Rambla, and reportedly holding the occupants hostage, after their van was driven at speed into pedestrians, in this crowded and popular tourist area. This 'hostage' story later officially discounted.

Police have cited the incident a "terrorist attack" local media are reporting thirteen people have died of their injuries. 

Police are now calling for the extensive Metro underground railway to be closed, as they suspect a third gunmen fled from the crashed vehicle, and may have entered the train system.

Police are reporting multiple injuries and openly calling the incident a 'massive crash'.



Police are currently throwing a 'cordon sanitaire' around the crime scene, and entering all buildings and the huge highly attractive flower, fruit and vegetable market, dotted with food , wine and tapas bars, half way up La Rambla, known as la Boqueria.

Security forces urging people to evacuate, and armed police are escorting residents at a fast pace, away from buildings overlooking the crime scene, and all are being urged to keep away from the area around Plaça de Catalunya, the city's central square where the main railway station is located.

Photos and videos being shared on social media show pedestrians fleeing and many injured and 'dozens' lying wounded on the ground.  Las Rambla is a plane tree-lined pedestrian mall, with a single file narrow roadway either side of the central pedestrian walkway, dotted with news kiosks and flower shops.  

It stretches for 1.2 kilometres (0.75 miles) connecting Plaça de Catalunya in the centre with the Christopher Columbus Monument at Port Vell. La Rambla forms the boundary between the quarters of Barri Gòtic, to the east, and El Raval, to the west.

Police are also appealing for any cameraphone footage of the incident to be handed in: 

Comisaria de Policia de Barcelona (Ciutat Vella)
Carrer Nou de la Rambla, 76-78
08001 Barcelona, España.
Tel: +34 93 306 2300
Fax: +34 93 306 2301

Police are urging people to stay inside, away from windows,  and off the usually busy pedestrian areas. According to eye witnesses, local churches are said to be full with armed police protecting the locked entrances.

Police sources are suggesting locally that a second attack cannot be ruled out or that the gunmen may be operating in concert with others.
