Police were called to Clifton street at 3.00 this morning after a resident above Boots Lytham reported a break-in to the shop below.

It was reported that 3 burglars broke into the shop/chemist; it is believed that a large quantity of medicine was stolen. Unfortunately police arrived late to the scene, after burglars left with their finds.
