A CHIP shop in Walton-on-the-Naze has gone up in flames.

Four fire crews were called to the shop in Hall Lane at just after 10pm yesterday.

When they arrived they found the ten metre by five metre building completely alight.

Firefighters removed slates from the roof so they could spray water into the shop from above and the ground.

The fire was under control by about 11.45pm.
