Base jumpers breach Twickenham se­cu­rity

SP's MAI - - INTERNAL SECURITY | BREACHES -

Two pals sneaked un­chal­lenged into Twickenham Sta­dium and parachuted from the roof on to the pitch in a se­cu­rity lapse ahead of the Rugby World Cup. Princes Wil­liam and Harry were among the sell-out crowd at the ground for Eng­land’s huge Pool A clash against Wales.

De­spite warn­ings of the raised se­cu­rity threat at the show­piece venue dur­ing the World Cup, dare­dev­ils Jamie Flynn and Dar­ren Straf­ford—and a film­maker who videoed the stunt – had lit­tle trou­ble pulling off their night-time escapade. Even af­ter land­ing on the flood­lit pitch, the jumpers were free to take pho­tos be­fore pack­ing up their para­chutes and strolling out of the sta­dium.

Jamie, 28, said: “We thought it would be harder. I think ev­ery­one would think it is.”
