#PrayForNice trends as the world mourns the horrific atrocity, which has claimed at least 84 lives.
Musicians have spoken out about the terrorist attacks in Nice, which occurred in the Southern French city on Bastille Day last night (14 July).
At least 84 people were killed and 50 left critically injured when a lorry drove through crowds of people, who were on the streets celebrating the national holiday.
The Courteeners' Liam Fray led the tributes from the country last night, after hearing the sad news while visiting friends in Paris.
Queen's Brian May shared his "deepest sympathies".
