Four police officers were hurt in a collision between a police van and a car driven by a drunk driver in Blackpool in the early hours of Saturday morning.

The smash in Holmfield Road, North Shore resulted in the van’s airbags being deployed and the four policemen were checked out at Blackpool Victoria Hospital but later discharged.

A police spokesman said: “The driver of the car gave a positive breath test at the roadside and was arrested.”
