BBC reporter Susannah Streeter said 10 emergency vehicles were at the store when she arrived.

She said staff understood one of the injured people was by the shop entrance collecting money for a charity bike ride.

"I saw blood on the floor by the door and staff inside were looking shocked and shaken and hugging each other," Ms Streeter added.
