Lancashire police have announced that today (Monday 6th July), there will be firearm officers patrolling the county carrying out training exercises.

The officers will be dressed in plain clothes but will be wearing police caps so they can be identifiable to the public.

The training exercises are part of their ongoing training, so there is nothing to worry about.

The training will start in Preston but they could end up anywhere across  the north and west of the country, including Lytham St Anne’s area!
