It shows the cab a black estate or people carrier slowly approaching reception and then suddenly stopping, sending white smoke and debris flying into the air.
Mr. Perry sprints from the driver’s side door as a man in a yellow hi-viz vest dash to assist him.
The vehicle is subsequently enveloped in flames, but luckily, except for a few parked cars, the area appears to be vacant at the time of the explosion.
The car’s male passenger died at the scene, and three males, ages 29, 26, and 21, have been charged with terrorism.
On Monday morning, police announced the arrest of a fourth male, aged 20.

This is Liverpool taxi driver David Perry who locked a Remembrance Sunday terrorist in his cab seconds before the bomber detonated an explosive device right outside a maternity hospital. David’s actions almost certainly saved many lives. He is an absolute hero. 👏👏👏👏 pic.twitter.com/qjHzGMxIUT
