by Sam Peoples

Manchester United’s match against Bournemouth at Old Trafford has been abandoned due to security reasons.

A suspect package was found in the North West quadrant of the Stretford End and Man United have taken the decision to abandon the game.

This is the first time that a match has been abandoned at Old Trafford since a hailstorm in 2004 forced the game to not go ahead. Greater Manchester Police have confirmed the game is now called off.

Police will now be investigating the suspect package in the North West quadrant. We will bring you updates on this situation as soon as we have them.
