Two cars have been “deliberately” set on fire in a yard in Blackpool, fire crews have said.

Firefighters were called to Central Drive in the town at about 6.30pm on Sunday, and had to gain access to an enclosed yard to put out the blaze involving two parked cars.

A statement from Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service said the crew used two hosereel jets to put the fires out and “notified police of the arson”.

Nobody was hurt.
