"This fiasco caused massive inconvenience to supporters who had come from far and wide to watch the match, wasted the time of huge numbers of police officers and the army's bomb squad, and unnecessarily put people in danger, as evacuating tens of thousands of people from a football stadium is not without risk."
"United will be refunding all tickets and allowing ticket holders from both clubs in for free. Manchester United season ticket holders will also be given a credit."
"It is estimated this gesture will cost United around £3m."
