Blackpool’s promenade has been closed off as firefighters tackle a blaze at a block of flats.

Crews from fire stations across the resort were called to the block on the corner of Dean Street and the Promenade, in South Shore, at around 4.30pm on Friday.

Smoke can be seen coming from windows of the building.

A police cordon is in the place in the area, between Rawcliffe Street and Station Road, according to a police source.

The Promenade is expected to be busy with traffic ahead of the Illuminations going on this evening, at 7.45pm, and the second of the Fireworks Championships displays tonight.
