In circa 1944-45 tub fell over and ignited the contents. They spilled and ran into the lane and blocked drains in Botchergate when solidified. Villa Loboratory also manufactured head-ache tablets. These were called Embex. This was done on the first floor near the office. This information was authenticated by Mrs M.Tuer who worked in the Office and Mrs I.Dennnard who worked in the Factory
