At least one person was killed and another injured in Marseille after a white van crashed into two bus shelters in different parts of the southern French city.

Police said he is a French national who did not live in Marseille but was known to the authorities.

The first person was killed at 8.15am local time (7.15am BST) after a white Renault Master van, believed to be stolen earlier this morning, smashed into a bus shelter in the Red Cross neighbourhood in the 13th arrondissement, in the poorer eastern part of the city.

An hour later, at 9am local time (8am BST), the woman was injured after another bus shelter was driven into on Avenue des Peintres-Roux outside a KFC branch in La Valentine, in the 11th arrondissement.

The driver was then arrested on Boulevard Charles Livon in the Old Port area, about eight miles west of the first crash.

The crashes come as French police have joined in the search for Younes Abouyaaqoub, 22, who is suspected to have been the driver of the van which ploughed into dozens of people in Barcelona on Thursday, killing 13 people.

Spanish authorities fear the terror attack perpetrator has fled to France as they have still not managed to pin him down in Spain.

The source, added: “At the moment we have no information on the motives of this individual.”

ISIS supporters have already started praising the incident.

The crash comes as France remains on high alert following a series of terror attacks over the past two years.

A handful of ISIS supporters have used trucks and cars to cause carnage in several French cities and towns, including nearby Nice on Bastille Day last year.

Earlier this month six counter-terror soldiers were injured after a man rammed his BMW into them outside a Paris barracks in a “deliberate act of terror”.

The week after a 13-year-old girl was killed on the outdoor terrace of a pizzeria in Sept-Sorts, a small town east of Paris, after a man deliberately rammed his grey BMW into the restaurant.

Earlier today it was revealed Paris police found an arsenal of rocket launchers last Thursday in the capital’s Saint-Denis neighbourhood which is known for being home to several ISIS sympathisers and terrorists.

Three anti-tank rocket launchers as well as automatic rifles, explosives, 12 and 9mm calibre ammunition were found.

Police also found 40kg of cannabis resin, police lights and bulletproof vests in a bicycle room inside the house.

Two suspects, aged 30 and 40, who had been under surveillance for several weeks, were arrested and placed in custody.
