Dave was injured in the incident but only suffered burns and shrapnel injuries. In doing so he saved many lives within the hospital.

It is believed the passenger within his taxi started acting suspiciously which caused great concern for David.

He leaped out the taxi, locked the doors and moments later the car became a fireball.

Merseyside Police confirmed it had handed over the investigation to colleagues from the North West Counter-Terrorism unit, which ­regularly targets Islamist and far-right inspired terror suspects.

Merseyside Police’s chief constable Serena Kennedy gave a statement outside the hospital, saying: “So far we understand that the car involved was a taxi which pulled up at the hospital shortly before the explosion occurred.

“Work is still going on to establish what has happened, and could take some time before we are in a position to confirm anything.

“We are keeping an open mind as to what caused the explosion but given how it has happened, out of caution, Counter Terrorism Police are leading the investigation supported by Merseyside Police.”
