A 12-year-old girl has died after being found unresponsive at Cala Gran Holiday Park in Fleetwood at 9.40pm on Monday.

The girl, from Oldham, was treated by paramedics before being taken to Blackpool Victoria Hospital, where she died a short time later, a spokeswoman for Lancashire Police said.

Her death is currently being treated as ‘unexplained’, and a post-mortem examination is due to be carried out to establish a cause of death, she added.
