Manchester United: Left to wait as match abandoned at Old Trafford

Manchester United’s final home game of the season against Bournemouth has been abandoned due to the presence of a suspect package.

At around 2.40pm an announcement was made for security personnel to invoke ‘operation red code’ and it soon became apparent the Stretford End and Sir Alex Ferguson Stand were being evacuated.

Those in the South Stand and East Stand, where the visiting Bournemouth supporters were seated, were unaffected, with United officials confirming police were investigating after a suspect package was found in the North West Quadrant.

A tweet from the Premier League said: “MATCH ABANDONED The match at Old Trafford has been abandoned due to a security alert.”

Shortly after 3.15pm people remaining in the ground were informed the game was off.

The club announced: “Due to the discovery of a suspect package in the north-west quadrant of the ground, the match has been abandoned for today on police advice.

“People in the stadium are advised to remain in their seats while the forecourt is cleared of fans evacuated from the stadium. Further announcements will be made as soon as possible.”

    Wonder what that’s all about?!

    Hopefully nothing too serious and just a precaution.

    The suspect package is probably LvG notes and plans for next season.
