Ambulance ‘Full of Explosives’ Reportedly Found Outside of Hannover Stadium

Ambulance ‘Full of Explosives’ Reportedly Found Outside of Hannover Stadium

Germany’s Euro 2016 warm-up friendly with Holland has been cancelled tonight due to security fears, with some reports claiming that an ambulance ‘full of explosives’ has been found parked outside the venue in Hannover.

The match was called-off just 90 minutes before kick-off, with authorities admitting there had been a ‘concrete threat to safety’.

German newspaper kreiszeitung.de – as well as The Daily Mirror – are currently reporting that the emergency services vehicle had been discovered with potentially lethal explosives inside, whilst claiming that a “troublemaker” who is known to the authorities is on the pitch.

The terrifying news filtering through from Hannover comes just days after the horrific terrorist attacks in Paris, where three people were killed following an attempted suicide bombing outside the Stade de France as France took on Germany in a friendly.

In total, 129 people were killed in the weekend attacks, and Belgium’s friendly against Spain, also due to be played this evening, was cancelled last night due to concerns over safety.
