They tweeted that after a shoreline search alongside Blackpool RNLI and Blackpool Police it was later determined that the person had returned back to their hotel.

A short time later they reacted to reports of shouts for help heard on the beach in the Anchorsholme area and carried out a search with Lancashire Police.

It turned out to be ‘a false alarm with good intent’.
