“At present, the site is managed by our contractors J T Mackley with 24-hour security supplied by Beacon,” the statement said.

“We will be reviewing security levels with our contractors in light of this incident and will be stepping up our security further following this event.

“The building is not complete and permanent security measures will be being installed over the forthcoming months such as high security walls, alarmed doors, access control and CCTV cameras, which will make breaches of this type become increasingly difficult.”
