Football fans attending matches at Hillsborough will have their bags searched following the terrorist attacks in Paris last week.

A Sheffield Wednesday spokesman said: “Following the tragic events in Paris last week, and following consultation with Counter Terrorism officers from South Yorkshire Police, the club has reviewed its ground regulation policy for matchdays and non-matchdays.

“Sheffield Wednesday will now adopt a policy of increased searching of all bags, back-packs and holdalls and due to the heightened security status, ground regulations relative to these items will be strictly enforced.”
