Pictures have emerged of a Liverpool-branded bus being blocked in a street near the team hotel ahead of their rearranged Premier League fixture against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
The original fixture was postponed after United fans staged a huge protest at the stadium against the club's owners, the Glazer family.
After some fans managed to make it into the ground and stormed the pitch, as well as demonstrating at the United team hotel, the decision was taken to call off the match.

With the fixture rearranged for this evening, fans seemingly refused to let up and looked to try and force another abandonment.
Photographs posted to social media showed cars blocking a red official Liverpool club coach on a road said to be near the hotel Reds players were staying.
However, it turns out the bus was a decoy and the real team busses, which were a far more inconspicuous plain black, instead took a detoured route to the stadium.
The Manchester Evening News report that someone also attempted to let down the tyres from the bus.
After police cleared the apparent protesters, the bus was soon on the move.
Protesters have also gathered at Old Trafford again.
