Manchester United had to abandon Sunday’s Premier League clash with Bournemouth because a dummy device was left in the stadium by mistake after a training exercise, Sportsmail has learned.
Old Trafford was evacuated after a mobile phone was found strapped to piping. The match, which was being broadcast on Sky Sports, was postponed before a bomb disposal unit carried out a controlled explosion.
The results of the explosion showed the device was actually a mock-up, described by police as ‘incredibly lifelike’.
