BLACKPOOL Tower has glowed green already this week when it celebrated St Patrick’s Day, and now the world famous landmark really will go green when it flicks the switch on its lights in a bid to help save the planet.

It is just one of a number of landmarks and public buildings switching off power for one hour on Saturday evening as part of Earth Hour – an international event calling people to turn off power for one hour to demonstrate their concern for the environment.

Council bosses are hoping the Tower’s display for green schemes will encourage residents to back the international event.

Lights will be going down for an hour from 8.30pm this Saturday.
