A Liverpool taxi driver’s “heroic efforts” averted what could have been an “awful disaster” on Remembrance Sunday, the city’s mayor has said.
His cab pulled up outside Liverpool Women’s Hospital and exploded just before the national two minutes’ silence at 11:00am GMT in what has been declared a terrorist incident.
Mayor Joanne Anderson praised the cabbie, named locally as David Perry, for “locking the doors” before the blast.
The taxi passenger died at the scene and Mr Perry was taken to hospital.
Three men have been arrested under the Terrorism Act, while MI5 is assisting regional counter-terrorism police.
