Police cordon in place near supermarket in Sheffield city centre
A police cordon is in place outside a supermarket in the city centre close to Sheffield Hallam University.
The cordon is in place outside the Sainsbury’s Local store on Arundel Gate, with pedestrians unable to use the stairway leading to St Paul’s Place.
The lane nearest to the supermarket is closed to traffic.
However, traffic is moving freely with workmen diverting motorists via the lane nearest to the University.
The Star have contacted South Yorkshire Police for further details and are awaiting a response.
Charlotte Ost, a student at Sheffield Hallam University said: “I got to University at 4:30pm and it was already cordoned off, there was a police car.
“I left at 6pm and as I walked out a glass panel fell from the side of the building, about 10 storeys up, and smashed on the ground.
“There was more police when I left and they told us to stay away from the road and they were diverting cars.”
