A man was left with leg injuries after his foot went through part of the decking on North Pier today.

Firefighters from Blackpool Fire Station were called to the incident around 2.30pm.

Fire crews found the man, who was visiting the resort with his partner, with one leg stuck through the decking.

A spokesman for Lancashire Fire and Rescue said: “A man’s leg went through the boarding on the pier deck.

“Fire crews went along and pulled him out. We are still not sure of the circumstances.

“We were at the scene for around 30 minutes and the incident was over quite quickly.

“An ambulance arrived and the man was treated by paramedics.”
