Man Charged With Murder After ‘Beloved Son And Brother’ Killed In Blackpool

On Monday 2nd October, 38-year-old Daniel Allsop (pictured) was assaulted on Bethesda Road in Blackpool and admitted to hospital with serious injuries.  Sadly, Daniel died in hospital on Wednesday. Yesterday, Friday 6th October, a 29-year-old man of no fixed address was arrested on suspicion of murder. He remains in custody. Despite that arrest, Police are continuing to carry out their enquiries.

A Police spokesperson says, ‘We believe that Daniel was assaulted on Bethesda Road at around 4.30pm on Monday and we would ask anyone who was in the area, maybe on foot or travelling in their vehicle or public transport, who saw anything – however inconsequential they may think it is – to make contact with us.

We are also asking people to check their dashcam, doorbell, CCTV and any mobile phone footage from the area to see if they have captured anything which could help our inquiry.

Our thoughts are with Daniel’s loved ones at this distressing time. As you would expect, they are being supported by specially trained officers.

In a tribute, Daniel’s family said: ‘On October 4, 2023, we lost a son, dad, brother, grandson, uncle, nephew and cousin. He passed peacefully surrounded by his immediate family.

He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.’

A Police spokesperson adds, ‘We know there have been a number of high-profile incidents in Blackpool recently which will understandably cause our community some concern. We would like to reassure residents that this investigation is being treated as an isolated incident. There are officers in the area carrying out enquiries and we have increased reassurance patrols. If you have any concerns or any information, please stop and talk to one of our officers.

Anyone with information is asked to report it online via our Major Incident Portal here:  or call 101, quoting log 431 of October 7, 2023.

Alternatively call independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.’
