Boiler leaking oil

Got home today to find strong smell of oil in garage where heating boiler is. DH has had a look inside boiler and says there is a small pool of oil on the bottom of the boiler casing. We had the oil tank filled 2 days ago - not sure if that is connected in any way?

WHat I want to know is if it is safe to keep boiler running or whether I need to turn it off. Is there any danger from the boiler firing up? I guess the oil will still leak whether the boiler is on or off.

Will try and get someone out to look at it tomorrow but just want to sleep easy tonight in the knowledge that it won't combust! No one can access it except us and no one in the house smokes.
