British bomb disposal experts carried out a controlled explosion following the discovery of a "suspect package" at Manchester United's Old Trafford stadium ahead of a key soccer game Sunday.
United had been due to play its final game of the English Premier League season but ahead of the kick off two sections of the stadium were evacuated before the match was then abandoned.

"A controlled explosion has just been carried out within the stadium by bomb disposal experts at Old Trafford," said a statement on Greater Manchester Police's Twitter feed.

Police took the decision to call off the match as a British Army Disposal Unit was deployed to Old Trafford.
The game against Bournemouth could have seen United qualify for next season's Champions League -- European soccer's biggest competition -- if they had won and their local rivals Manchester City had lost away at Swansea.

Turns out that the 'suspect package' was actually a fake bomb that had been left behind after a training exercise during the week. It was designed to look real for sniffer dogs to find but why had it not been found after four days in a toilet and why didn't the company who arranged the exercise not account for a lost 'bomb' when they checked everything back in on their inventory.
