Anti-ram security bollards could be installed around Tesco shop in Theydon Bois

Anti-ram security bollards could be installed around the Tesco in Theydon Bois in order provide a perimeter around the shop’s ATM for enhanced protection, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.

Permission has been sought from Epping Forest District Council to erect six anti-ram-raid bollards after an incident that occurred in the early hours of October 26 last year, when a red Manitou digger stolen from a nearby farm was crashed into the front of the Tesco store on Coppice Row.

A police presence remained near the shop for several weeks to protect the cash machine and secure the premises, which surveyors were checking for stability.

The shop was reopened before Christmas, with Tesco chairman John Allan promising its architects would design permanent repair plans and update the ATM’s housing to make it more secure.
