    In an interview with BBC Look East Ms Evans described how the terrorist reloaded his gun just feet away from her, the discarded magazine landing by her hip.  

    "He just stood there with this huge gun... moving around all the people, shooting them, just killing, murdering... then his feet were at the side of me," she said.

    Ms Evans, who lives in west Norfolk, was holidaying in Sousse with a friend when the attack happened. She was forced to "play dead" to save her life.  One year on, she still jumps at any loud bang.

    Quote Message: You can't imagine the terror... the sound... for months afterwards if anything went bang I'd look for somewhere to hide, even under the tables." from Angela Evans
