Manchester United do the right thing and ban iPads and tablets at Old Trafford

This is good news and we hope others follow suit...

If you're that type of person and you're a regular visitor to the UK to support Manchester United, we've got some bad news for you. The club have prohibited electronic devices including laptops and tablets at Old Trafford.

In a statement on their official website, the club explained why they've banned the devices.
