Man arrested after car hits group of people on Blackpool North Pier

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan...shire-57957823

A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a car hit a group of people on Blackpool's promenade.

Police responded to reports that a car had driven at pedestrians near the North Pier at about 05:25 BST.

Officers stopped the red Peugeot on a residential street and the driver fled the scene, Lancashire Police said.

A 30-year-old Manchester man arrested after a search of the area remains in custody.

Officers do not know whether members of the group who were hit by the car sought medical attention and have urged them to get in touch.

Insp Abi Finch-Hall added: "Despite the early hour there were several pedestrians in the area at the time. We believe there are also witnesses who have not yet been spoken to by police."
It may have been an "accident" but nevertheless .....

Have the police released the name of the suspect ? That might tell us a great deal about him.

I heard, the arrested 30 year old man was from Manchester and it was an isolated incident.

Without being a pedant, I'd like to point out that the car was not on the Pier, or even all that near!

Another news item being bent!

(and a car)
