A shopping mall has been evacuated in the French city of Nice, after a bomb scare set off panic, hours before England’s Euro 2016 match with Iceland.

According to the Telegraph, more than 2,000 people were led from the centre after a suspicious bag was found.

Security forces stormed the building with machine guns, ordering everybody inside to leave following the discovery.

The Lingostiere Centre is just two miles from the city’s Stade de Nice where England will play Iceland this evening.

The bomb scare comes just two days after Nice Airport was evacuated following the discovery of a suspicious package.
