POLICE have closed Cleveleys Promenade after two drums began leaking unknown liquid.

The fire service and police were called to Jubilee Gardens, on the Promenade, at around 3.30pm this afternoon following reports fluid was leaking from a 200 litre drum on a construction site.

One drum has since been removed and a second bagged up to be taken away.

No evacuation has taken place but the road was closed as a precaution, and the fire service said the details have now been passed to Wyre Council.

A police spokesman said they were asked to close the road as a precaution to allow three fire engines to attend the scene.

The road is expected to re-open around 7pm.
