An eyewitness said: "There were two police cars outside the Tithe Barn as I walked past this morning.

"The path outside the Tithe Barn leading to Morrisons was taped off."

Students at Tresham College's Wellingborough Croyland Hall campus have been told to stay away after access to the path to their building was closed by police.

A message on their website advised students: "Our Croyland Hall campus in Wellingborough will be closed all day."
