A driver has deliberately ploughed a van into pedestrians in Barcelona killing at least 13 and wounding dozens.

Police have described the incident, along one of Spain’s busiest streets, as a ‘terrorist attack’ amid fears he driver is armed and has stormed a restaurant.

A hunt is still underway for the attacker and it is not yet known who carried out the atrocity.

But it is not the first time a vehicle has been used to carry out mass murder in Western Europe with similar atrocities taking place in Britain, France, Germany and Stockholm and claiming well over 100 lives.

Low tech attacks using stolen and hired vehicles to randomly rammed into crowds, have been increasingly used by terrorists unable to get hold of guns and explosives.

It is ‘nigh on impossible’ for security services to monitor and stop potential terrorists planning such murders and the only way to prevent them is by using barriers to protect pedestrians, according to one expert.

Managing Director of Corporate Security Services Will Geddes earlier this year said attacks of this kind will likely increase.

He said: ‘We have seen a marked increase since the attacks in Nice last year and there is every good chance it will become regular as it is a very easy platform to deliver an attack.
