A security boss revealed a fake “pipe bomb” similar to one accidentally left behind at Old Trafford – causing 76,000 fans to be evacuated on Sunday.
The training aid was one of 14 incendiary devices used by Security Search Management & Solutions during security training last Wednesday.
However, one of the 14 items was accidentally left in a male bathroom.
The firm’s boss, Christopher Reid, displayed a similar “bomb” to the one which caused Manchester United’s final Premier League game to be abandoned.
Mr Reid described the aid as a “mock-up” pipe bomb, eight-inches in length with brass fittings at each end. ITV UK
