A woman has been taken to hospital following a fire in a Blackpool flat.

Crews from Blackpool and South Shore stations were called to the first floor property in Whitegate Drive late on Saturday afternoon.

Four sets of breathing apparatus were used to tackle the fire, which a brigade spokesman said was 'well developed'.
