MANCHESTER UNITED GAME ABANDONED FOR SECURITY REASONS

It was the final round of matches and Manchester United were supposed to host AFC Bornemouth at old trafford with a champions league place on the line but the match had to be called of for security concerns.

A package was discovered some 45 minutes to kick off and after consultation with the Manchester Police, it was decided to evacuate the stadium and call of the match. The stratford end of the stand had to be evacuated first before the whole stadium was evacuated.

Reports just coming in have it that a controlled explosion was triggered off inside old trafford grounds lending credence to the fact that it was a bomb in the parcel discovered.
