According to the Telegraph, a device in a Corsa car exploded outside a bank behind the DaVinci retail complex around midnight. BBC reported North West Money Exchange had recently relocated to the DaVince retail complex after its prior building was damaged from another car bomb.

The Telegraph reported that police received a warning an hour before the explosion. There was some damage but no injuries occured. BBC News reported that managing director David Harris said the attacks and damage done to the building would not deter the company from investing in the city.
