Smoke bomb at Manchester United in anti-Glazer protest

Angry Manchester United fans have set off a smoke bomb outside Old Trafford as part of a mass protest against the club's American owners, the Glazers.

Hundreds of fans congregated outside the ground ahead of the final game of the season against Stoke, chanting and brandishing placards.

The smoke bomb was set off outside the club's Megastore.

Greater Manchester Police confirmed one smoke bomb had been set off but said there were no injuries or arrests.

The Glazers took over at Old Trafford five years ago. Critics said the family borrowed money to buy the club and saddled it with massive debts.
