A man is being treated for burns after he was blown off an oil tank as it exploded and burst into flames at a Kent engineering company.
Witnesses reported seeing huge flames rising into the air at the height of the blaze at the Kingsnorth Industrial Estate on the Hoo peninsula.

Nine staff were on the premises at the time of the blast but there were no other injuries.

The injured man was taken to the Medway Maritime Hospital with minor injuries.
Reminds me of, what was it, Bunsfield? I wonder if this is going to start bieng a regular thing?

"What we were dealing with was a massive chip pan - the whole surface area of the oil inside the tank was on fire and heating the metal tank,"
Said a fire brigade spokesman throwing in another box of Mars Bars.
