Manchester United, England's most decorated soccer club, have called off their final match of the Premier League season after a suspicious package was found in the north-west corner of Old Trafford minutes before kickoff on Sunday afternoon.

The Stretford End and Sir Alex Ferguson stands, containing around 20,000 spectators, were completely evacuated before 3pm local time.

Sky News reported that spectators were ordered to leave after sniffer dogs  discovered a "suspicious package" on the premises.

Details are still emerging.
