One person was killed and another was seriously injured in a car bomb blast outside Liverpool Women’s Hospital on Sunday, British police confirmed.

Emergency services were called to the scene after a car bomb exploded at the NHS site at 10.59am on Sunday. Merseyside Police had earlier said it was a taxi. The bomber struck shortly afternoon in front of a police recruiting center, police said.

Briefing outside the hospital, Chief Constable Serena Kennedy said: So far, we believe the car was a taxi heading towards the hospital shortly before the explosion. Work is underway to determine the nature of the incident. And it may take some time to confirm anything. 

He added: We are keeping an open mind as to what caused the blast and in this context, as a precautionary measure, the Counter-Terrorism Police is leading the investigation in collaboration with the Morsi Side Police.

Earlier, pictures of a burning car in the hospital’s car park were first shared on social media. One individual who posted the photos on Twitter guaranteed that his companion, who works at the emergency clinic, sent it to him.

The bomb removal unit and outfitted officials were seen moving toward the scene before the police gave the most recent update. An ambulance, a forensic team, and a fire and rescue service were also seen. Police said the injured man was a man in critical condition but no one was named.
