These are the new enhanced security checks everyone going to a …

Full details have emerged of the enhanced security measures Welsh rugby fans will encounter for the first time at the Principality Stadium this weekend. Given the terrorist attacks in the UK this year, new procedures have been put in place for Wales opening autumn international against Australia this Saturday. These will include 100 per cent personal checks at the turnstiles, which will apply to everybody entering the stadium.

There will be enhanced security at the Principality Stadium this autumn

Fans are also being advised to leave large bags and umbrellas at home, as they will not be able to take them into the ground. Small bags and handbags will be permitted, provided they are no larger than 35cm x 40cm x 19cm. There are no bag storage facilities available at the stadium, so spectators are advised to plan ahead if they intend travelling to Cardiff with a large bag.

Small umbrellas are permitted, but cannot be used when the event is in progress, while there were will be strictly no golfing umbrellas allowed inside the venue. In a statement on the enhanced security, the WRU have said: The latest security measures include 100 per cent personal checks at the turnstiles and the advice to leave large bags and large umbrellas at home to avoid disappointment and causing further delay to fellow supporters entering the stadium.

Welsh fans will be converging on the stadium in their thousands this weekend

Due to the new measures, fans are being urged to get to the ground well in advance of the 5.15pm kick-off. The stadium will open three hours before all four Test matches this autumn, instead of the 90 minutes Welsh rugby-goers will be used to.

With more than 66,000 tickets having been sold for the Australia match and enhanced security in place, the message to all supporters is to get to the ground early.

The WRU have turned to Wales prop Samson Lee to deliver a personal reminder to that effect via a WRUTV spoof video. Lee acted out scenes filmed at the team hotel and the stadium to show supporters that poor planning ahead of match day now comes with the genuine risk of missing kick off.

The Scarlets star said: As a squad, we are used to working to a strict schedule where everything from our eating, sleeping, training, kit and transport is planned out to ensure the very best preparation for international matches.

The filming for the Don t miss kick off video has really hit home how well prepared we are as a team, but also shows the consequences associated with lack of proper planning.

With the enhanced security measures we are becoming accustomed to in the UK, this is an important message for anyone with tickets for the Under Armour Series and supporters need to arrive early for the 100 per cent search regimes, or, like me in the film, they risk missing kick off!

Ask any player and they will tell you the best feeling in the world is hearing the roar of the stadium crowd during the anthems.

We want every single fan in their seats for the start of the match and I really hope this film raises awareness and motivates our supporters to plan ahead this autumn, as well as being a bit of fun! While South Wales Police stress there is no specific threat to Cardiff, bosses at the Principality Stadium routinely work closely with the Police and the Wales Extremism and Counter Terrorism Unit to deliver appropriate security measures for major events.

Stadium manager Mark Williams said: The safety and enjoyment of supporters on matchday is our top priority and so we have increased the gate opening hours to three hours before kick-off for the autumn international matches.

This will allow a capacity crowd to pass through the enhanced security checks safely and in plenty of time to enjoy the games and the renowned pre-match build up at Principality Stadium.

We strongly urge fans to assist us in maintaining a safe and secure stadium by getting in early and leaving large bags and large umbrellas at home to avoid unnecessary delays and disappointment.

Workman who installed giant iron security gate which crushed grandmother to death jailed for manslaughter

A workman who installed a giant iron security gate which crushed a grandmother to death has been jailed1 for three and a half years.

Robert Churchyard, 52, was convicted2 of manslaughter by gross negligence over the death of Jill Lunn.

Mrs Lunn, 56, hailed as the rock of her family, was killed when the automatic gate toppled on the much-loved grandmother at her home in Blofield Heath, near Norwich. Mrs Lunn was killed in the horror incident at her own house just weeks after the gate was set up. The freak accident was a wholly preventable tragedy , the court heard.

Churchyard, of Norwich, was jailed at the city s crown court. He was also convicted of an offence under the Heath and Safety at Work Act at a separate trial. Churchyard worked for Automated Garage Doors and Gates Ltd when the tragedy happened.

The company also admitted three counts of failing to comply with a requirement under the Supply of Machinery (Safety) regulations and was fined 12,000. Churchyard fitted the huge gate, which weighed about a third of a tonne, in March 2013. But it didn t have any failsafe stopping devices to prevent it falling if it was operated manually, the court heard.

On the fatal day Mrs Lunn pulled into her drive, with her grandchild in the car, and tried to close the gate using the remote control. It wouldn t work so she tried to shut the gate manually. It fell straight on top of Mrs Lunn and crushed her to death on April 17, 2013.

Andrew Jackson, prosecuting, said the tragedy could have easily been prevented by a stopping device either to the gate or to the track upon which the gate ran. Mr Jackson branded the devastating tragedy wholly preventable .

In an impact statement read in court, Mrs Lunn s grief-stricken family said her death had left them devastated . They said they felt cheated she had died in such a terrible way and were still struggling to come to terms with the tragedy.

But her daughter said they felt the person most cheated was Mrs Lunn herself as she had so much more living to do . Jailing Churchyard, Judge Stephen Holt said it was an awful tragedy as he stressed: There are no winners. Judge Holt said the family s raw, emotion-charged impact statement was heartbreaking .

He said the case crossed the custody threshold and he had no alternative but to jail Churchyard, whose own family left the court in tears. Anthony Potter, defending, said he had never got over what happened. Mr Potter said: He has continued to think about what happened to Mrs Lunn on a daily basis.

It s had an effect on his health.

Her family said they felt cheated she had died in such a terrible way and were still struggling to come to terms with the tragedy

He said Churchyard, who worked for the company for 20 years, has now left and become a long-distance lorry driver. Mr Potter said: He will not return to this kind of work in the future. Philip Hackett, QC for the company, offered their profound regret and apologised for their failings.

But Mr Hackett said following the tragedy every single installation by the firm was inspected and there was no other failure. He said: It is still completely inexplicable what actually happened on this occasion. Mr Hackett said the company was a small family enterprise, had pleaded guilty at the earliest opportunity and fully co-operated with police.

Afterwards Det Sgt Darren Reade, of Norfolk Police, said: Jill s death should never have happened.

If Churchyard had undertaken all the safety work expected of him then she would have been protected from the gate breaking in such a way.

I hope that this outcome prevents a similar tragedy from happening in the future. Mrs Lunn s loved ones told the court that four generations of their family had been shattered by her death. They said in a statement: The sudden loss of our perfectly healthy, beautiful, loving 56-year-old mother, sister, daughter and Nana has taken its toll emotionally physically and financially on the whole family.

Mrs Lunn s loved ones told the court that four generations of their family had been shattered by her death

Our Mum was our rock, the hub of our family.

She was the most loving and caring person you could ever meet.

If there was a competition for best Mum and Nana she would have won hands down.

They said they thought fitting gates to Mrs Lunn s home would keep the family safe.

Unfortunately, this was not to be the case and in fact totally the opposite, they said.

The day our Mum died a big chunk of who we are, what we lived for and our ability to care and love was taken away from us. After the case a shocked safety expert said the industry must learn a lesson from the tragedy. Health and Safety Executive inspector Edward Crick said: This case is a stark demonstration of what happens when companies do not comply with the relevant legislation relating to the safety of machinery.

The industry must learn from the tragic death of Jill Lunn so no other family suffers the same loss.

There is plenty of guidance available to help businesses ensure they put in place the basic safeguards and provide their customers with the necessary information top operate them safely.

Norfolk County Council Trading Standards Business, Food and Farming manager, Jon Peddle, said: The failings in this case had tragic consequences for Mrs Lunn and her family.

We welcome this sentence and hope this sends out a clear message to similar businesses.
