Heavy rain brings flooding in Lancashire.

Heavy rainfall has led to flash flooding in Lancashire. Police said they received calls from 5 30 this evening as severe weather came in from the coast.

Roads were closed as emergency services dealt with incidents in Blackpool, Lancaster and Carnforth as a band of rain moved across the county. A spokesman for the Fire Service says that fire crews were called to assist at a number of properties that were affected, though there are no reports of injuries.
