Heads will roll after Manchester United fake bomb fiasco

Manchester United v Bournemouth was called off yesterday. A suspect package was discovered at Old Trafford.  The Telegraph tells the sorry tale:

A farcical security blunder led to Manchester United’s final Premier League game of the season being cancelled on Sunday, after a private security firm forgot to remove a fake bomb taped to the back of a toilet door as part of a training exercise at Old Trafford.

The colossal error had sparked fears of another potential terrorist attack and resulted in the match against Bournemouth being called off as tens of thousands of fans were evacuated from one of the world’s most famous sports grounds.

Heads will roll. No, not at ISIS. It wasn’t a bomb. At the security company that didn’t find all its ‘bombs’, then forgot to collect and count them. But really it’s just pretty funny.

PS:  What’s odd is the Guardian’s front
