Muslims on the Fylde coast are being urged to stay safe while observing Ramadan.

The holy month sees many Muslims fast for its duration, and North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) is urging those participating to keep their health in mind while doing so.

Ged Blezard, NWAS head of service said: “During these hot weather long fasts, dehydration is a common and serious risk.

“It’s important to balance food and fluid intake between fasts and especially to drink enough water.

“If during this Ramadan period you start to feel unwell, disorientated or confused, our advice as supported by Islamic principles is to stop fasting and have a drink of water or other fluid.”
