Twickenham Stadium will enforce strict security measures for the upcoming Six Nations matches in light of the terrorist attacks in Paris last November.

Additional security arrangements for bag searches and pat-downs will be in place at all entrance points and at the west fan village. Spectators will not be allowed to bring large bags or rucksacks into the stadium, and are being advised to arrive at least 45 minutes before kick-off.

A rugby Football Union (RFU) spokesperson said the additional security checks will “remain in place until further notice”.

“In light of the attacks in Paris last year, new security measures have been put in place at Twickenham Stadium,” said the spokesperson. “The safety of those attending Twickenham Stadium on match day is of paramount importance.”

The RFU is also working with police and security forces to ensure spectator safety. Twickenham will host two matches during the tournament as England faces Ireland on 27 February and Wales on 12 March.

In November, three suicide bombers tried to enter France’s national stadium, the Stade de France, as part of a coordinated attack across the city which killed 130 people.
