Workers at the 'High' nightclub, based on Nice's Promenade des Anglais, gave away 1,000 flowers to mourners of the Bastille Day lorry attack, Sunday.

Manager of the club, Gilles Tevenet, said that the business was "directly touched" by the attack due to its proximity to the killings. He explained that "on this day of communion, this Sunday, a special day for all of us, it would be good to make a gesture and offer a rose to all passers-by, as a symbolic and normal act."

The attack in Nice on Thursday night killed 84 people and injured more than 200 when a truck was driven through crowds of people celebrating Bastille Day.

The suspected driver was named as Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, after investigators found his details on a driver's license and bank card found in the truck.
