Police and sniffer dogs were sent to Manchester United captain Harry Maguire’s mansion after he received a bomb threat.
Cheshire Police said that officers had attended the England defender’s house on Thursday, where he lives with his fiancee Fern Hawkins and their two daughters.
A spokesman for Maguire told The Sun: “In the last 24 hours, Harry has received a serious threat to his family home.
“He has reported this to the police who are now looking into the matter.
“The safety of his family and those around him is obviously Harry’s number one priority.
“He will continue to prepare for this weekend’s fixture as normal and we will not be commenting in any further detail at this time.”
A spokesperson for the force said: “On Wednesday 20 April Cheshire Police were called to reports of a bomb threat at an address in the Wilmslow area.
“No evacuations took place, but as a precautionary measure a police explosives dog has attended the address this afternoon, Thursday 21 April, to conduct a search of the gardens and surrounding area.”
