The South Shore crews were also called out on Thursday at 9.20pm to a house on Queen Victoria Road, Blackpool after the property began to be affected by the flood waters.

When crews arrived they found there were several properties on the street affected by rising levels and firefighters assisted by turning off electrics and using an ejector pump to remove the water.

The crews gave advice to the residents on the street before leaving after spending around 35 minutes at the scene.
