Several hours later, the busy link which heads inland between East Beach and the Clifton Street/Warton Street, close to the town’s landmark Windmill and The Green, was still in normal use by other drivers, with the hole highlighted by white markings but no other warning signage.
A spokesman for highways authority Lancashire County Council said: "The recent dry weather has led to an increase in voids appearing, particularly along the coast where the underlying ground is naturally sandy.
"We will look to investigate and repair this hole early next week, and in the meantime our local highways team will attend to put in traffic management to keep vehicles away from this area.
"We would ask people to promptly report any issues such as this so that we can make them safe, which they can do using the Report It tool on our website, the Love Clean Streets app, or by calling 0300 123 6780."
