Comb sticking to top bars from above


I am new to bee keeping and started my first Warre in April. The bees are happy and have nearly filled the top box with comb and have started on the box below. I had been checking the hive nearly weekly at first but then gave them some space and went 2, almost 3 weeks before opening the hive. When I did I found the combs were not only attached (quite well ) to the sides of the top box but also to the top of the top bars of the bottom box. When I attempted to remove the top box it destroyed any work the bees had done below and was a huge mess with disgruntled bees. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a million
