Merseyside Police on Monday reminded social media users that the video is crucial evidence in "a live and ongoing investigation" and should not be distributed.

Writing on Twitter, the force went on to say that not only is the video sensitive material in what has now been declared a terrorist attack, but it "may show bystanders, witnesses and the victim who was injured" and aside from causing distress, sharing it could jeopardise the investigation.

A taxi driver - David Perry - is believed to have locked the door to his vehicle after seeing the explosive, preventing further damage, injury, and loss of life during the incident at Liverpool Women's Hospital.

It has since been reported that taxi driver David Perry allegedly leapt from his taxi after "noticing the passenger wearing a device."

Though the explosion occurred at the hospital, the male passenger reportedly asked to be dropped off at Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral less than a mile away, where 1,200 military personnel, veterans and families of fallen soldiers had gathered for Remembrance Sunday.

Four men have been arrested in connection with the incident.
