A toilet block in the centre of Garstang was driven into during Saturday evening.

Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service sent crews from Fulwood and its urban search and rescue team to the block in High Street.

Firefighters used stabilising equipment to shore up the premises and left the incident with police at the scene. Fire crews had been on site for more than three hours making the scene safe.
