Woman Apologises For Telling News Reporter Nice Terror Attack Had Ruined Her Shopping Trip

Woman Apologises For Telling News Reporter Nice Terror Attack Had Ruined Her Shopping Trip

A British tourist has apologised for telling a journalist that the sickening terror attack in Nice last night had ruined a shopping trip.

At least 84 people were killed and a further 18 have been left critically injured, including children, after a truck deliberately crashed into a crowd of people who were celebrating Bastille Day in the city.

When Sky News reporter asked Lucy Nesbitt-Comaskey to give her perspective as a British tourist in the area, she replied: "The first thing about it and I know this is awful and maybe a bit selfish but it did spoil our shopping trip.

"We bought all these lovely shopping [sic] and now I can't be bothered with it - it just doesn't mean anything now."

However, the woman has now apologised and claimed she was "totally distressed and shocked" when she made the comments.

"My sincere condolences to the French people who have lost their loved ones today in Nice," she said.

"I'm deeply sorry if my interview with Sky News sounded uncompassionate [sic]. I was totally distressed and shocked. My words came out wrong. Once again sorry."

Our thoughts are with the people of Nice.
