“The area was cordoned off for investigations but it has been established that there was no criminality.”

One witness who did not want to be named described the scene.

He said: “I came down the road and the whole place was cordoned off.

“I had to ask the police officer who was there if I could get through and he let me but said that I had to keep to the right of the road.

“The whole road is cordoned off but it looks like everything is done and dusted now.

“They had it cordoned off from the old Tesco entrance right down to Poundstretcher.

“There were two police cars – one at the bottom and another one at the top.”
