The taxi driver said: “There was a thundering bang. I thought it was a bomb. Martin screamed. We didn’t know what happened. We hadn’t seen the truck.”

“It smashed into where he was sitting. Martin’s door was bashed in. It was probably doing 10mph but was so big it destroyed the cab.”

Martin is best known for his role as DS. Steve Arnott in the bit BBC series Line of Duty.
