Two stands at Old Trafford were evacuated shortly before Manchester United's final Premier League game of the season against Bournemouth was due to kick off.

At around 2.40pm an announcement was made for security personnel to invoke 'operation red code' and it soon became evident fans were leaving the South Stand and Stretford End.

The North Stand and the East Stand, where the Bournemouth supporters were seated, did not appear to be affected.
