A lorry has smashed into a store in central Stockholm, killing at least three people, Swedish police say.

Several people were also injured in the incident on Drottninggatan , one of the city's major pedestrian streets.

Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said everything pointed to an act of terrorism and that one person had been arrested. He gave no details.

The firm that owns the lorry said it had been hijacked earlier in the day.

The crash happened at the Ahlens department store just before 15:00 local time (13:00 GMT).

Swedish brewery Spendrups said its lorry had been stolen on its way to a restaurant delivery.
