More than 1,100 people flocked to Fleetwood Police Station for an open day.

Residents met officers and learned about the role police play in the community.

James Devlin, 42, from Fleetwood, said: “I am interested in who my police officers are. It’s been good to meet them.”

And residents said they were interested to meet the people from public and voluntary organisations who they may one day need to call upon for help.

Angela Insp Steve Bell, geographic inspector for Wyre, said: “The turnout just shows the support we have out there.

“It’s been a great example of all the emergency services working together and in these austere times working together is key. It’s nice for everyone to come and meet us.

“We are the community’s services so we’re showing them what we do.”

Volunteers from North West Air Ambulance, mountain rescue and the RNLI also joined the event.
