Video: Watch as Old Trafford is Evacuated Due to Code Red Security Scare

Old Trafford was evacuated this afternoon following a ‘code red’ security alert, meaning Manchester United’s must-win match at home to Bournemouth was abandoned.

United and Louis van Gaal were preparing to play their final Premier League match of the season, knowing a win, coupled with a Manchester City defeat at Swansea, would take them into fourth place in the Premier League and a Champions League spot for next season.

It remains to be seen when the proposed match will eventually be played, if at all, with City currently beating Swansea and United having the FA Cup final to prepare for next week.
