Bomb alert in Manaus

Police gave the all clear after a suspect package was found in a car ahead of Italy’s World Cup game with England.

The match kicks off at the Arena Amazonia in Manaus this evening at 23.00 UK time (22.00 GMT).

Several Italian sources, including La Gazzetta dello Sport and the Corriere dello Sport, have reported seeing police cordon off an area around a car.

They claim a sniffer dog alerted officers to a suspected explosive in the vehicle.

However, police have now removed the car and given the all-clear. It's believed the car contained traces of gunpowder.
