Investigations have been launched after two fires on the Fylde coast.

In Fleetwood, a bin was placed next to the front door of a flat on Lord Street before being set on fire.

The occupant, a man in his mid 50s, was able to get out safely after a passer-by raised the alarm.

A crew from Fleetwood fire station was called to the flat at 8.25pm to tackle the blaze.

A crew from South Shore fire station was also called to Bensons for Beds at around 9.15pm, after a fire in the toilet.

The cause is currently being investigated.
