What people are saying?
Boris Johnson My thoughts are with all those affected by the awful incident in Liverpool today. I want to thank the emergency services for their quick response and professionalism, and the police for their ongoing work on the investigation.
Fiona Anderson The emergency services, yes but let’s not anyone forget if it wasn’t for the heroic act of the taxi driver, who locked the doors of his cab before the device exploded it could have been much, much worse. The acts of “Joe Public” in incidents like this need to be highlighted too.
