Firefighters were called when a blaze started at a town centre takeaway.

Crews from Wigan fire station went to Mr Joe's, on Wallgate, in Wigan town centre, at around 11.30pm on Saturday.

A deep fat fryer had been overfilled and the oil caught on fire.

The takeaway was smoke-logged but firefighters put out the fire before it spread.
