Base jumpers breach Twickenham security
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.”
