Police officers are still at the scene of an attempted break in that took place in the early hours of this morning at a Tesco Express store in Burnley.

Police were called to the supermarket in Casterton Avenue at 4-35am.

A police spokesman said the offenders scaled a fence at the back of the store and used welding equipment to try and break through a metal fence.

"Those involved used some sort of blow torch attached to a gas cannister to try and get in," he said.

"Nothing was taken from inside the store and officers are still at the scene."
