FLASH: Car explosion kills one in Liverpool

A vehicle explosion outside a Liverpool hospital has wounded one person and killed another.

Despite the fact that the cause of the blast has yet to be determined, counter-terrorism investigators have been dispatched to begin an investigation, according to a hospital spokeswoman.

“It has not been declared a terrorist incident” but counterterrorism detectives were leading the inquiry “out of caution”

“It could take some time before they could confirm details,” she said.

“Where possible, we have diverted patients to other hospitals until further notice,” she added.

“We are reviewing our patient activity for the next 24-48 hours and patients should wait to be contacted for updates about any planned appointments or other attendance at the hospital.”

The car fire, which has since been extinguished, was “unsettling and disturbing,” according to Liverpool mayor Joanna Anderson, who added, “My sympathies are with those impacted.”

The mayor further thanked the first responders for their swift response.
