A man’s body has been found on a Fylde beach following a five-hour search at sea by emergency services.

 

Although still to be formally identified, it is thought to be that of a 19-year-old man from Bolton who was reported missing from Rossall Beach, between Cleveleys and Fleetwood, around 3.30pm on Saturday,

Coastguard crews from Fleetwood and Knott End, RNLI volunteers from Blackpool and the Coastguard search and rescue helicopter joined police in the search and were stood down shortly before 9pm when the body was found close to where the man was reported missing.

A spokesman for Lancashire Police said: “The circumstances are not thought to be suspicious and our thoughts are with the man’s family at this time.”
