Morecambe coastguard were called out in the early hours of this morning after reports of a group of youths playing on some boats moored up on Morecambe promenade by Thornton Road.

Upon arrival at the scene the youngsters were found swimming near the boats and having a bonfire.

The fire service was also called out to extinguish the fire, which had subsequently been extinguished by a combination of sand thrown on it by the youths and heavy rain prior to the fire service’s arrival.

The youngsters left the scene shortly afterwards.
