THE body of a woman has been found on a Fylde beach.
Emergency workers made the tragic discovery on Sunday morning opposite The Venue in Cleveleys.
An ambulance passing the scene at 9.20am spotted the body of a woman police believe to be aged between 40 and 55-years-old on rocks close to the shore.
Crews from Fleetwood Coastguard and police were called to remove the body, and an investigation is underway to discover how she came to be in the water.
The death is not being treated as suspicious.
Nick Brook, of The Corners, Cleveleys, was walking his dog along the Promenade when the body was being recovered.
He said: “There must have been five or six police cars, an ambulance and the coastguard’s search and rescue team there. It’s very upsetting when something like this happens so close to Christmas.”
