Old Trafford fake bomb: Security chief statement

The boss of the firm that left a fake bomb at Manchester United's Old Trafford stadium says he takes "full responsibility" for leaving the item behind.

In a statement to journalists, Chris Reid of Security Search Management & Solutions Ltd (SSMS) described the device, revealing it had a small 'return to' label.

The bomb scare led to the cancellation of the match against Bournemouth, and the evacuation of the 75,000-seat stadium.
