Wrigley Field has been evacuated following a bomb threat after the Chicago Cubs' 2-0 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Sunday.

The MLB venue had hosted the afternoon fixture finishing at 16:33 local time (21:33 GMT), with reports claiming most fans had exited the venue when the evacuation was underway.

The evacuation was called for just prior to 19:00 local time, with several workers and media still inside the stadium.

CBS Chicago reported that police brought in bomb-sniffing dogs to search the park around 19:00.
