Sacked worker arrested over Tesco roof protest at Reading store The man entered the roof space in the evening and it was not until the next afternoon that police were able to arrest him.

An ex-security guard at a Tesco store has been arrested after staging a day-long protest in the shop’s roof.

Adam Jammeh has been demonstrating for seven months over his claim that he was sacked over false accusations of stealing.

Around 6pm on Thursday he turned up at the Reading Extra store and appeared to shout towards customers: “I’m not going nowhere. I’ve got food in my bag, I’ve got water in my bag, I am well prepared.”

He then climbed into the ceiling space

The superstore, on Portman Road, was shut after the incident began.
