POLICE are investigating after a man died and two others were hospitalised following an incident.

The death is currently being treated as unexplained but police believe it may be drugs related.

Police were called shortly before 8am on Tuesday to a report that three men had been taken by ambulance to Blackpool Victoria Hospital.

A 22-year-old man was pronounced dead at the hospital and a 24-year-old man is currently in a stable condition.

The third male, aged 22, from Liverpool, has been arrested on suspicion of possessing Class A drugs. He has since been returned to hospital for checks.

It’s thought all three men are from Merseyside and were visiting the resort on holiday.
