Firefighters from South Shore and Blackpool stations were called to the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) building in Peel Park, Marton, after a fire broke out in an electrical intake room at 7.25pm yesterday.

Nobody was hurt, but the building suffered some smoke damage, a spokesman for Lancashire Fire and Rescue said.

A spokesman for the DWP said: “We have contingency places in plan, and any staff who would normally work in that part of the building are working from other sites.”
