Major venues across the UK are to increase security measures, following the terrorist attack on Manchester Arena that killed 22 people and injured many others.
The incident, which took place on Monday night after a concert by US singing superstar Ariana Grande, has led to concerns over security at other events around the UK.
Wembley Stadium (pictured) is due to host football’s FA Cup final this weekend, as well as the championship and League Two play-off finals, and a spokesperson for the English Football Association (FA) said venue staff will work with police and local authorities to help ensure the safety of fans.
“Fan safety is of paramount importance and we have robust security measures in place at Wembley Stadium,” the spokesperson said, according to the Daily Mail newspaper.
“In collaboration with the Metropolitan Police and the local authorities there will be an enhanced security operation for all upcoming events.
“All supporters are encouraged to arrive for events at Wembley Stadium as early as possible for security checks and to avoid any delays in entering the stadium.”
Twickenham, which will host rugby union’s Premiership final on Saturday, is also set to increase security, although police in Cardiff have said that plans are currently unchanged for the Uefa Champions League football final, which will take place in the Welsh capital on June 3.
