Police were called to a Blackpool town centre store after reports of a suspicious package – but it proved to be a false alarm.

No-one is understood to have been evacuated from the Primark store in Bank Hey Street as officers searched the premises on Saturday afternoon.

A police spokesman said: “We are treating it as a genuine call with good intent.”

No-one from Primark was available to comment.
