Police are currently at the scene of an incident in Colchester town centre after calls over concerns for the welfare of a child.
Officers were called to the Fenwick department store in High Street and subsequently closed off several streets to the public.
A spokesperson for Essex Police said: "We were called to Fenwick department store by colleagues in the ambulance service shortly after 11.30am this morning with reports of concerns for the welfare of a child.
"We assisted colleagues in the ambulance service and a number of roads were closed around the area, including High Street, North Hill and North Station Road."
Fenwick posted a statement on its Facebook page which said: "We have closed our Colchester store due to an incident this morning. We will update in due course."
The roads have since reopened although the incident is still ongoing.
