It’s believed that the passenger had brought a homemade explosive device into the vehicle and asked to be taken to the hospital.

Upon arriving at the hospital’s drop-off zone, Perry managed to escape the vehicle before it was engulfed in flames. He has since been discharged from hospital which his wife Rachel has described as “an utter miracle”.

Following the incident, three men were arrested aged 21, 26 and 29 while another man, aged 20, was detained yesterday.

All four men have since been released without charge following interviews with police.

The motive behind the attack has still yet to be determined, however, it is still being declared as a terrorist incident.
