A GREYSTEEL couple have spoke of being just "minutes away" from getting caught up in the terror attack which hit Barcelona last week.
Some 13 people were killed and dozens injured when a driver deliberately rammed a van into a crowd in the Las Ramblas area of Spain's second largest city on Thursday (August 17).
Shari Butcher and her husband Danny were in the historic Spanish city and had left the Las Ramblas area just minutes before the attack.
Mother-of-three Shari was staying in a hotel beside the attack site and once things had clamed down, she and her husband Danny secured themselves in the hotel until they flew home the next day.
