One cat has been killed and another is missing following a flat fire off Central Drive in Blackpool this morning.

Some 15 firefighters manning three engines were called to Ashton Road after being called by a passer-by at around 7.20am.

They searched the flat while wearing breathing masks after it was reported somebody might have been inside, although nobody was.

A joint probe between police and fire investigators has now been launched to find out how the blaze started.
