[Update – sadly the news has now been confirmed. Our condolences to Nick’s family and friends – Mosh]
It seems that one of the people that were being searched for last night, Nick Alexander of Colchester, is amongst the dead in the horrific attack on the Bataclan concert hall. The Telegraph has reported that he was shot in front of a very close friend who tried to keep him alive, but she lost track of him as people were being evacuated after the police secured the building.
In Flames (and many of Nick’s friends) have posted RIP messages, and we fear therefore that the news is the worst,
though no official announcement has yet been made. Nick was working front of house on the merchandise stand.
All the staff here at Moshville Times want to pass on our hopes, sympathies and thoughts to Nick’s family, friends and colleagues.
