A bomb scare has forced an evacuation at the UCLA campus in the US, where Manchester United and Real Madrid are camping for pre-season training.

The incident took place at around 10pm local time in Los Angeles, which was 6am in the UK, but neither team were present at the time.

According to the LA Times, at least, three residence halls at the Westwood campus were evacuated, with students being ushered to the campuses Drake Stadium.

University of California police, Capt. Bob Leinweber, confirmed that no explosives were found after a recreation centre was searched with four bomb-detecting dogs.

“We’ve just about concluded the search and nothing found,” Leinweber said.

A UCLA spokesman confirmed that the evacuation was merely, “precautionary”.
