At least six people have been killed in New York after the driver of a truck mowed down people on a cycle path in Lower Manhattan.

A man who emerged from the vehicle brandishing imitation guns was shot and arrested by police officers.

Police have urged people to avoid the area as a major emergency services operation gets under way.

US police describe the incident as a terror attack, with reports saying the FBI is now leading the investigation.
