POLICE have launched an investigation after an attempted break-in at a Hampshire supermarket overnight.

Winchester firefighters and police were called to Tesco Express, in Springvale Road, Kings Worthy, at 1:05am this morning after a security device was activated.

The device is known as a ‘smoke cloak’ and sets off an alarm and releases smoke to stop the intruders.

It appeared to have worked, as nothing is believed to have been taken.

Those smoke alarms are superb. Tesco Express Ocean Village have it installed and it went off once whilst I was shopping. The shop immediately filled up with smoke and you couldn't see a thing.
