Lancashire Fire and Rescue said that its drone team was in attendance and appealed to sight-seers  not to fly their own drones near to the scene so they would not obstruct their emergency operation.

The Promenade was closed from Empress Drive to Gynn Roundabout for several hours, with diversions in place on Warbreck Hill Road. The road is now open.
