‘Hero’ taxi driver David Perry – who survived Liverpool blast – out of hospital and back at home


The taxi driver who escaped the car explosion outside Liverpool Women's Hospital has been named as David Perry.

It is understood he has been released from hospital and is recovering at home.

The male passenger of the car died in the incident on Sunday morning and three men – aged 29, 26, and 21 – have been arrested under the Terrorism Act.

Earlier, Conservative party co-chairman Oliver Dowden told Sky News it was a fast-moving investigation.

"It is an emerging situation and the home secretary is being kept briefed on it," he said.


"It is a reminder to us all that the threat of terrorism hasn't gone away and how much we depend on our police and security services."
