Officers said the speedboat, along with a trailer, was found in Cropper Road in the town.

In a Facebook post, police said: “The driver of the vehicle towing somehow managed to misjudge the road and managed to collide with the security fencing around a building site there.

“We suspect that the pair were stolen overnight, possibly from the Blackpool area but more likely from the Glasson Dock or Skippool Creek areas.”
