A friendly between the German and Dutch national football teams has been cancelled, reportedly because of a bomb threat.

The stadium in the city of Hannover is being evacuated.

A “specific threat” prompted the evacuations according to German newspaper BILD, citing police sources.

German press agency DPA says security services have received information about a potential terrorist attack “that should be taken seriously,”.

People leaving the stadium have been told to go home by police.
