Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir Bobby Charlton among VIPs kept in stadium after security scare following Manchester United defeat

Sir Alex Ferguson and  Sir Bobby Charlton  were among a group of spectators in the VIP area prevented from leaving the Volkswagen Arena following Manchester United's 3-2 defeat to Wolfsburg after a suspect package was found in a car park outside the stadium.

They had to wait for approximately 15 minutes as police looked at the package. They were then allowed to leave after the police were satisfied it was not a bomb, a Wolfsburg official said.

Security has been heightened at Champions League games following the Paris terror attacks last month when three suicide bombers blew themselves up close to the Stade de France while France played Germany.
