Organisers of the Royal Welsh Show have reassured visitors that public safety is their "number one priority" this year.
There will be increased security at the show and a larger police presence than usual. The announcement comes in light of recent terrorist attacks.
They say event management and contingency plans to cover different scenarios are in place.
There is nothing to suggest any incident will happen at the show, however, to ensure our guests can relax and enjoy the show, we are increasing the security provision during the week, in line with the national trend. These measures, designed to reassure, will include an increased security staff, a larger police presence and random bag searches at the entrances to the showground.
The Royal Welsh Show have issued the following advice to visitors:
- Allow extra time for arrival at the showground and be ready to show all your relevant tickets, passes or badge when asked.
- Ensure that if you have a vehicle pass, it is correctly displayed in your windscreen before approaching the carpark/showground entrance.
- Report anything suspicious to, the police, a steward or staff member.
