Sea alert over '˜woman in water'
Rescue boats were launched off the Fylde coast after fears a woman had gone into the water in Blackpool.
The Lytham coastguard and Blackpool RNLI were mobilised at around 9.30pm last night.
They searched the area around Central Pier for around an hour but found no signs of anyone in the water.
It is believed the alert was a false alarm with good intent.
