Forty people have been reportedly injured in a stampede in the French Mediterranean resort of Juan-Les-Pins after fears of gunfire led to panic.

Police denied Twitter reports of an attack or a shooting, but confirmed that a stampede has taken place on the town’s Louis Gallet Avenue and are reviewing CCTV footage of the incident.

France Bleu Azur radio reported that the noise, which led to panic, came from firecrackers or from a car with a noisy engine. The outlet later reported that 40 people received minor injuries in the stampede.

Firefighters have asked people not to clutter the phone lines as they respond to the incident.

Several ambulances are also on the scene.

This is the second scare in the area in recent days. On Saturday a Juan-Les-Pins neighbourhood was cordoned off after a suspicious water bottle sparked a bomb threat and major operation, according to Nice-Matin. No threat was found.

Juan-Les-Pins lies 27 kilometers south of Nice, the scene of last month’s deadly terror attack.
