Police cordon remains at scene of Liverpool hospital blast

A police cordon remained at the scene of Liverpool Women’s Hospital on Monday (November 15), a day after a vehicle explosion killed one person and wounded another.

A male passenger in the car was declared dead at the scene, while the male driver was injured and was in hospital in a stable condition, police said on Sunday (November 14).

Counter-terrorism officers said they were investigating the case with local police and that they were keeping an open mind as to what had happened.

Three men – aged 29, 26, and 21 – were detained in the Kensington area of the city and arrested under the Terrorism Act, police said in a statement on Sunday.

Police also said they understood that the car involved was a taxi that pulled up at the hospital shortly before the explosion occurred.
