British tennis player Laura Robson says she is "in shock" but safe after attending a Las Vegas concert where more than 50 people were killed and hundreds injured in a mass shooting.

A gunman opened fire from the Mandalay Bay Hotel toward an open-air country music festival being held close by.

Robson, 23, indicated on social media she was unhurt.

"I'm OK. We were right there..sounded like fireworks at first then everyone started running. Scary," she said.

The British number five added: "My friend who was deeper in the crowd has been helping people who were shot. We're all in shock."

Robson last played on Friday in the ITF tournament in Templeton, California, where she lost in the quarter-finals.

Meanwhile, Surrey cricketers Jade Dernbach, Tom Curran and Stuart Meaker were in Vegas during the incident but were away from the danger.

England bowler Curran posted on social media: "Craziest experience last night. So so sad but we are all OK! Praying for everyone affected."
