Two fire crews were called to tackle a huge blaze in a shed containing 500 litres of cooking oil. 

The Southend and Leigh firefighters were called to Swanage Road, Southend, at 11pm last night. 

The shed, which was 2.5m by 5m, was 100 per cent alight when crews arrived. 

They put the fire out within about 30 minutes and remained at the scene until just before midnight to make sure everything was safe. 

An investigation will be carried out into the cause of the fire.

Hope whoever owns the sheds gets procecuted, you dont keep that amount of cooking oil in a shed at the bottom of a domestic garden for exactly this reason, it could have been a a lot worse. Too tight to have the proper facilities
