At least 10 babies and children were killed, some in buggies, and at least 54 children are also being treated in the hospital.

Friends and family members have shared photos of their loved ones online in a desperate bid to locate them after 84 people were killed when a terrorist gunman drove a 25-ton lorry through crowds on a mile-long killing spree on Thursday night.

Meanwhile, investigators are using the city’s 1,200 surveillance cameras to track the route of the lorry before the attack.

It is understood that Bouhlel had rented the truck on Wednesday from a specialist garage at Saint Laurent du Var by Nice Airport.

Police have discovered CCTV footage of the moment he boarded the lorry in the hills around Nice, according to reports.

It has also been claimed he was parked on the promenade for nearly nine hours before the attack, but was allowed to stay because he told police he was delivering ice cream.
