One person has been arrested after a car left a trail of destruction in Blackpool overnight.
Police were called to Lytham Road, close to the junction with Bloomfield Road, after a silver VW Beetle demolished a phonebox and smashed into a traffic light at around 1.50am.
Officers found the car to be empty after the driver fled the crash, but arrested a man nearby on suspicion of a slew of offences.
The 27-year-old, of no fixed address, was held on suspicion of dangerous driving, drink driving, and taking a vehicle without consent.
He remains in custody where he is due to be questioned.
Pictures taken at the scene at around 2.20am clearly show the damage caused.
Glass and debris – including the car’s windscreen wipers – were left scattered across the junction after the badly-damaged Beetle ploughed into the street furniture.
And the phonebox was left almost unrecognisable, with the traffic light at a 45 degree angle.
