French police ‘REMOVED ROADBLOCK just before terrorist ploughed lorry into crowds in Nice’

SERIOUS questions are being asked about the ability of French police to guard against terror after the over-stretched force removed a roadblock just before a terrorist ploughed a lorry into a sea of unsuspecting people in Nice.

Eye witnesses say French authorities withdrew police vans blocking off the Promenade des Anglais hours before a 19-ton truck careered down the densely packed road, slaughtering at least 84 people and left countless others badly wounded.

Eye witnesses say four police vehicles had previously barricaded the road to protect a military parade, but they vanished before the attack commenced.

Just 45 officers were on duty during the Bastille Day celebrations, which was attended by more than 30,000 people.

This is despite concerns that Nice was a likely target for an attack as a large number of jihadists from the city have travelled to Syria to fight for the so-called Islamic State in recent years.

Regional president Christian Estrosi said a request he had made before the parade for more police officers had been rejected.

He was reported to have said: “There were only 45 national police officers on July 14. It was not enough. I can’t hide that I am angry.”
