Harwich’s Asda supermarket is set to reopen after being closed for approximately 18 hours due to reports of a man on the roof of the store.
Officers were called to the incident at the Main Road shop just before 9pm on Tuesday, August 4.
A cordon remained in place while police dealt with the incident, meaning the store had to remain closed for hours.
Now, an Essex Police spokesman has announced that a man has been detained and taken to safety, with the store due to re-open shortly.
He said: “Officers have now detained the man on the roof and brought him to safety.
“The store will be looking to re-open shortly.
“We want to thank you for your patience and understanding.”
