Jamie Oliver takeaway fire tackled by Oxfordshire crews

Slow-cooking meat in an oven prompted a call-out for firefighters to a Jamie Oliver takeaway booth in Oxfordshire.

Two crews from Bicester and a crew from Banbury were called to Fabulous Feasts in Bicester Village shopping park in the early hours.

Pork had been left slow cooking in the oven, but security staff smelled smoke and alerted the fire service.

Crews turned the oven off and the restaurant opened on Saturday as usual.

'Too much crackling'

Managing Director of Fabulous Feasts Nigel Harris said: "It was all a bit of a storm in a tea-cup.

"The only problem was our pork was a bit too well-done this morning. There was a bit too much crackling."

The takeaway restaurant, which opened two months ago, is described as an open fronted "pod" serving locally sourced food.
