Security measures are being stepped up at the Aldi store in Alvaston following a sighting of two boys on its roof.
The incident was reported to Derbyshire police, but officers said it is the owner of the building’s responsibility to ensure it is secure.
A photo was uploaded to the Spotted Alvaston Facebook page on Tuesday, July 16, of two young boys on the roof of Aldi in Coleman Street, Alvaston.
It appears the store was open at the time as cars can be seen in the car park and it looks as if people are walking through the door.
A spokesperson from Aldi said: “We immediately reported this isolated incident to the police and are carrying out our own full review of the store perimeter to prevent this type of behaviour happening again.”
