BLACKPOOL’S 999 emergency line is back in service after a morning of problems.
Police reported at around 10.30am the vital emergency number was out of use in the resort because of a BT problem.
The issue meant callers attempting to access the police, fire and ambulance services in an emergency were unable to get through.
Callers were being urged to contact the police’s non-emergency 101 number for urgent calls while the line was down.
The line was down for around three hours, but police have now confirmed it is working again.
