Police are seeking witnesses living in Northamptonshire who may have vital information about a today’s terrorist attack in Paris that led to the death of 12 people.

The attack, which happened today (Wednesday 7) when gunmen stormed into the office of the French magazine, Charlie Hebdo, has caused international uproar. Ten journalists were killed along with two policemen.

London’s Metropolitan Police are appealing for anyone who was in the city around the time of the attack - at about 11.30am - and may have information to come forward.

“Have you recently returned from Paris? Did you see any suspicious activity whilst you were there? Did you witness the attack? Have you video footage, mobile phone footage or photographs of the area?

“Please make yourself known to a Police Officer or Immigration Officer.
