"They've locked the doors because I'm not sure whether the person who may have done it has actually been caught, so they've locked the doors and told people just to wait in here".

One witness said the van "has trampled people while crossing the traffic light".

Barcelona police later said in a tweet that the vehicle and its driver were intercepted about 10 kilometers (6 miles) outside of the downtown area where the original attack happened.

Australian woman Susan Maclean, who is on holiday in Barcelona with her husband, said she was "very lucky" to have avoided the van as it ploughed through the crowds. We ran into the bakery with four or five other people and ran straight upstairs and hunkered down whilst an enormous wave of people went through the market. ISIS has taken responsibility for the attack. With my three children, I took shelter in a nearby cafe in a hope for things to settle down, " Daniela added.
