An elderly man suffered burns after falling onto a fire at a Blackpool home.

Emergency services were called to an address on Carisbrooke Avenue, Marton, at around 11.20am on Friday to reports of a man injured by flames.

Paramedics attended and took the patient to hospital to be treated for burns.

Fire crews from South Shore Fire Station were mobilised, ready to attend, but did not need to after it was found there wasn’t a blaze to be tackled.
