An explosive device has detonated inside a teacher's car outside a school in Liverpool.
The blast happened outside Runnymede St Edward's in Sandfield Park, West Derby - an independent Roman Catholic school.
Although witnesses had said the device was a nail bomb, police described it as a small improvised firework.
Supt Ian Pilling described the incident as a "despicable". He said children were leaving at the time and it was lucky no-one was injured.
Roads around the school, which is a few miles outside the city centre and has annual fees of around £5,000, have been cordoned off by police.
