Two rubbish fires started in Blackpool overnight, say fire services.

Crews from Blackpool were called to their first incident at around 9pm on Sunday, October 8 after clothing was found to be burning on Kent Road.

Firefighters used a hose reel to extinguish the fire.

Crews were called out to a fire in a wheelie bin at around 5am on Monday, October 9.

This incident happened in an alleyway between Ashton Road and Keswick Road.

A spokesman for the fire service said: "It's difficult to know exactly what started the fires. Neither resulted in much damage."

Nobody was injured in either incident.

The cause of both fires is under investigation.
