Chaos Erupts At Manchester United Training Ground As 9 Emergency Vehicles Attend 999 Call At Carrington 

Manchester United‘s Carrington training ground faced disruption on Wednesday morning after a car rolled down a bank.

The players faced potential delays getting into the club’s Carrington training ground this morning following a huge response from the emergency services after a car rolled down a bank.

The incident which saw a silver vehicle become lodged on its side prompted panic and was allegedly described as a “car hanging off a cliff” during a 999 call.

Nonetheless, a series of emergency vehicles which included five police cars, four fire engines and one ambulance rushed to the scene – congesting the entrance to the training ground.

Upon arrival, emergency services found the situation had been over-exaggerated, but the car still needed to be attended to and removed from the ditch.

He said: “I’ve got to show you the entrance to Carrington where we’ll be talking to Erik ten Hag this lunchtime.

“The scene here is chaos, you will have noticed the fire engine over my shoulder here and that’s because if you swing around, a car has ended up in a ditch here.

“We’ve got quite a substantial response, I think I’ve counted five police cars, an ambulance and four fire engines.

“I think the call initially went in to the police was that there was a car teetering on the edge of a cliff.

“There are no cliffs here, that was the old training ground, this is Carrington so mercifully everyone is okay.

“But there entrance to Carrington is blocked this morning so the players might have to wait a bit before they get into training.”

United are back in action on Thursday when they host serial Europa League winners Sevilla in the quarter-finals of the competition at Old Trafford.
