A number of caravans arrived shortly after midday today, according to witnesses.
Police are currently at the scene, as part of efforts to move the group on.
A Tesco spokesperson said: “We’re sorry for any inconvenience while our Romford Gallows Corner Extra is temporarily closed and we expect to reopen shortly.”
The closure of both the main store and the petrol garage is leading to traffic problems around Gallows Corner, with delays reported on both the A12 and A127 as a result.
