Stringent new security measures will be in place at Bramall Lane for the IBF World Welterweight title fight between Kell Brook and Errol Spence Junior in the wake of Monday night's Manchester terror attack.

Full-body searches will take place upon entry to the venue and no bags will be allowed into the stadium for the fight, promoter Eddie Hearn tweeted tonight.

Dog units will also be in operation, as, another tweet by Mr Hearn said, punter safety remained the number one priority.

Fans are urged to allow extra time to get into the venue.
