Police appealing for witnesses after two teenage girls from Blackpool were killed in a road accident last night.

At approximately 10.15pm police were called to reports on a road traffic collision on Garstang Road in Poulton.

On arrival, police found a Renault Clio had left the road and collided with a tree before ending up in a field. Sadly the two girls, believed to be both 17 years of age who were in the car were pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say the girls will be named later today.

Two men, aged 18 and 20 who were travelling in an accompanying vehicle have been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and are currently being questioned by police.

Garstang Road is currently closed between Poulton and Singleton for accident investigation and is likely to remain closed until around midday today.
