An Ipswich couple who arrived in Tunisia on the day of a terror rampage that saw 38 killed have described the “peaceful” protest performed by locals denouncing the attack.
Amy Robinson, 22, and Alex Neave-Vince, 21, landed in the Tunisian resort town of Sousse on Friday night for a two-week break.
“We arrived the day it happened. We didn’t actually see anything but last night we were on the beach paying our respects to those who have died and to light a candle,” Miss Robinson said.
She said there were around 2,000 people who came together to preach against the violence performed earlier that afternoon.
“The atmosphere is absolutely fine. All the locals are trying to make us feel safe,” she added.

Miss Robinson said she believed her and Alex were due to be moved out of Sousse to a different part of Tunisia today.
Prime Minister David Cameron yesterday asked for the flags over No. 10 Downing Street to be flown at half-mast in memory of the victims of the attack.
