Police were still at the Collier Row Tesco Metro store in Collier Row Lane at 8.30am.

A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman said: “Our officers were called out at 5.22am when the shop’s alarm was set off by someone attempting to force entry into the building.

“We deployed with sniffer dogs and did a full search of the premises but no suspects were found.”

It is not yet known if the store will open today.
