Manchester United’s final day game against Bournemouth had to be abandoned shortly before kick-off after a suspect package was found at Old Trafford.

Both the Stretford End and the Sir Alex Ferguson stand were evacuated completely after the security threat was identified.

A red alert was sounded over the public address system 20 minutes before the game was scheduled to begin (15:00) and fans were ushered to safety. Kick-off was initially delayed though it didn’t take long for the authorities to call off the game completely.

Of course, the #banter has been rife on social media but the main thing is that 75,000 fans are safe thanks to the quick, calm and efficient security procedures at Old Trafford.

A job well done.

    Banter aside, you’re right. Safety is what’s important. A game can always be replayed. Props to stadium security
