SECURITY concerns have been raised after a window was smashed at an empty supermarket in Andover.

Last week, the former Sainsbury’s store on Bridge Street was targeted, leaving a hole in the wall.

Boards were placed over the affected window, but a gap remains, and some residents have raised their fears about continued anti-social behaviour at the site.

A Hampshire Constabulary spokesperson said: “On 26 October we received a report about a window that had been smashed at a derelict building on Bridge Street, Andover.

“Contact is being made with the property owner.”

However, neither the police nor Test Valley Borough Council were able to tell the Advertiser who owns the unit, with Sainsbury’s saying it is no longer responsible for the site.

Officers are yet to make contact with the relevant parties to ensure action is being taken.

The store closed on Saturday, January 30, with the Bridge Street unit being one of the victims of closures announced in September 2019. It was one of up to 15 supermarkets, and 40 convenience stores, which were to be shut across the country.

Sainsbury’s Andover North store, on Shepherds Spring Lane, remains open.
