The coastguard has issued a warning after two ‘intoxicated’ people were found in the water around Central Pier in Blackpool this morning (June 26).

There was an emergency call out at around 7.30am after a member of the public reported a person in the water and possibly experiencing difficulty.

The coastguard arrived at the scene and discovered two intoxicated people who were then spoken to.

They reminded them and the general public to stay away from water if you have had a drink. The two people involved were passed over to Lancashire Constabulary and the North West Ambulance Service.

A spokesperson for HM Coastguard Lytham said: “We arrived on scene and established there were two intoxicated people in the water.

“RNLI Blackpool launched one lifeboat to assist the casualties, after talking with them, they eventually made their way out of the water and were passed into the care of Blackpool Police & North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust.
