Up to 1,000 Liverpool fans 'left stranded in UK'

Five metro stations evacuated in Kiev following bomb alert ahead of Champions League Final

Liverpool supporters were too left disappointed after several flights were cancelled in the days leading up to kick off, due to difficulties with airport landing spaces in the Ukrainian capital.

Liverpool announced on Friday that anyone who had bought match tickets directly from the club who was due to be on one of the cancelled flights would be able to claim a refund. "Explosive items were not found", the subway operator said on the official Facebook account.

3 of the flights were unable to get the correct slots at Kiev Airport.

"We've had conversations again with the mayor and the director of the airport there".

Raj Soni, manager of Worldchoice Sports, blamed poor organisation in Kiev for the problem.

"The company has said it can't resolve it, we have to respect that".

Witnesses described the troublemakers as a "pack of dogs" as they laid into Liverpool fans who were eating dinner at a restaurant called Rooster Grill, not far from the final venue Olimpiyskiy Stadium, the Independent reports.
