Premier League ace Martin Kelly, who hails from Newton, was in Paris during Friday’s terror attack.

The 25-year-old, who plays for Crystal Palace, said he was safe and well but was left shaken by the shocking events.

The ex-Liverpool full-back was in the French capital with his girlfriend for a short break when the terrorists struck.

But Kelly, a former St Aelred’s pupil, said he was safely in his hotel room when the atrocities took place.
