Security guard in Tesco Extra Reading roof protest

A security guard who claims he was "Sacked for no reason" from Tesco has spent the night protesting in the supermarket's roof space. He has been on the girders above the checkouts in Tesco Extra, Reading, for more than 14 hours, live-streaming on Facebook. He is understood to be in a long-running dispute with the supermarket and security firm, TSS. In his Facebook videos, the last one of which was posted at 05:15, he claims Tesco "Damaged my reputation" and "Sacked me for no reason". A Tesco spokeswoman said the company was still establishing the circumstances of the incident but believed the man had not been directly employed by Tesco but was a member of security staff. A statement said: "We're aware of an incident at our Reading West Extra store and are assisting police with the matter."
