Last week Lytham’s HM Coastguard received a number of emergency calls about missing children, who were all thankfully reunited with their families.

Fylde Council have told visitors to ensure they always keep a close eye on their family  as it only takes a second for them to disappear on a busy beach.

The Council advises, ‘Take a photograph as you arrive, just in case they do go missing so an accurate description can be provided for the search.’
