A man whose only gravely committed suicide in the Sunday blast, said that he had harmed his driver who quickly escaped the burning vehicle and locked the doors into the taxi. The man was the only one killed in the blast.
The bomb bomb was constructed by a passenger in the taxi. So far, we believe the bomb was built by a passenger in the taxi, said Russ Jackson, head of counterterrorism for northwestern England, said on a news conference Monday. It is unclear what the motive for this incident is, said Jackson, a central investigator and policing head of North-West England. The explosion is considered terrorist act, not long after the explosion was the result of our investigation, said said Jackson at the news conference
In particular Britain has been a great hit in recent years by highly-profile suicide attacks. In 2005, a series of violent suicides in London killed 52 people, and in 2017, a violent attack on the Manchester Arena, carried out by an Islamist extremist who met with the Islamic State group, killed 22 people.
According to the BBC, MI5 is involved in the Liverpool investigation. The British intelligence group pointed out that there was no specific ongoing threat, although the level of UK terrorism threats reached the level of substantial level a decade earlier in the afternoon, said the Prime Minister, telling reporters it was the largest risk for another attack.
The taxi driver, identified as David Perry, caught a car blast as the bus stopped at the hospital, which left the occupants of the car with minor injuries.
In the initial investigation, a passenger took an explosive device into the cab. The passengers identity is known to police but has not yet been released publicly.
A loud fire appeared on the scene after the taxi pulls up at the hospital entrance before a blast appears to blow the windows out of the vehicle. The driver screams as the driver gets out of the front seat.
A vehicle can be seen in a corner engulfed in flames within a few seconds.
Johnson called the explosion a "sickening attack" in the news briefing on Monday. He told the governments emergency committee earlier in the day that the blast happened.
While the investigation stayed diligently, Johnson noted that the explosion was a reminder of the need for us all to remain utterly vigilant.
We won't be cowed by terrorism, we won't give back to those who want to break us by sinless acts, Johnson added.
The police said that three men aged 21, 26, and 29 were arrested in the Kensington area of Liverpool hours after the blast Sunday. The four men were released, but were not immediately released. A second man, police said Monday.
A man may be kept out without prosecution Under the Terrorism Act, 14 days can be held without charge.
The investigation will now seek to understand how the device was built, the motivation for the incident and to understand if anyone else was involved in it, Jackson said. It's a reminder that threat from terrorism remains significant.
As far as the blast site goes, thousands of veterans, local leaders and civilian officials held a Remembrance Day ceremony at the heart of the tragedy. There is still no link between the event and the commemoration of the war dead.
But we are pursuing the line of inquiry, Jackson said. We are pursuing there are two attempts at drawing any connection to that, Jackson said. But in this time we can not draw any link to that, Jackson said. We are pursuing our own approach.
