The 25-year-old man was injured in the collision with a crew minibus travelling from the set of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiars near the seafront promenade on Friday afternoon (08May15).

Paramedics working on the movie tended to the man, while ambulance and police crews were called. A spokesman for the North West Ambulance Service said they were not needed at the scene thanks to the film team medics.

A spokesman for the movie tells Blackpoolgazette.co.uk, "A minor accident happened involving a crew vehicle and a member of (the) public... Paramedics were called immediately to the scene and the person involved was taken care of and discharged without going to hospital."
