WATCH: Black smoke over Eiffel Tower

WATCH: Black smoke over Eiffel Tower

The smoke could be seen after a huge firework display to celebrate Bastille Day in France. Police say a lorry carrying fireworks burst into flames at the base of the landmark. Unlike the lorry smash in Nice, there is no suggestion this is a terror-related incident.

It comes just days after flames were seen at the base of the Eiffel Tower when fans clashed during the final of Euro 2016. Police are keen to stress that there is nothing to worry about and that the accidental fire close to the Tower is being dealt with. It is Bastille Day and there are a lot of fireworks being used in the city.
