The boss of the firm that left a fake bomb at Manchester United's Old Trafford stadium has apologized for making a "devastating mistake".

A fake bomb planted by a security company as part of a training exercise at Old Trafford caused the cancellation of Manchester United’s final Premier League game of the season when the firm forgot to take it away.

The security blunder led to United’s home stadium being evacuated 20 minutes before kick-off against Bournemouth after an “incredibly lifelike explosive device” was found at the ground.
