Norwich City officials have urged supporters to arrive early for Sunday's Premier League game against Arsenal with extra security checks planned in light of recent terrorist attacks in France.
City released a statement on their official site on Friday with advice for supporters ahead of the weekend's Gunners' clash (kick-off 4:15pm).
It read: 'Supporters attending Sunday's Barclays Premier League clash between Norwich City and Arsenal are advised to arrive at Carrow Road early due to extra security measures which will be in place.
'Norwich City's safety and security team will be conducting bag searches as supporters enter the ground. To help speed everyone's entry to the stadium, the club advises fans not to bring bags with them to the game unless they are essential. In addition, supporters are advised the club will not be able to temporarily store any packages or bags on their behalf to be returned after the game.'
Head of Stadium Security, Andy Batley, added: 'We would like to thank both Norwich and Arsenal fans for their co-operation in helping us to ensure everyone can enjoy the match safely and get to their seats in good time for kick-off. With this in mind, please allow extra time for your arrival at the ground.'
