Dangerous Package Found at the Emirates Stadium

A security scare caused a bit of tension at the premises of the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday, reports The Mirror.

Police were informed about a suspicious dangerous package which was found around the home of Arsenal Football Club in the afternoon of that day and they first of all swung into action by blocking linking roads to avert harm to pedestrians and motorists.

The issue according to the police was handled as quickly as possible as they implored fans and inhabitants of the area to be calm and go about their normal duties

Further checks were conducted by evacuating some parts of the ground and its sorroundings.

Arsenal have since declined to make any comments on the happening.

Similarly in January 2016, five police officers, Alex Field, Jason Hodgson, Marc Woolmer, Sam Homer and Wayne Pullen prevented an attack on the Emirates Stadium.

On that occasion, they had to battle with a terrorist who had handguns, a crossbow and petrol bombs with him probably on a mission to blow up the Arsenal home, the Emirates Stadium.

The quintet (the group of five) was later honoured for their commitment and service to humanity by Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick at the Police Bravery Awards which held the following year.

Arsenal lost on their home ground on Sunday when they opened their season with a game against Manchester City. It was Unai Emery's first competitive match in charge since filling the void left by Arsene Wenger back in May.
