A man's body has been found off Fleetwood beach, police have said.

Police said although formal identification has yet to take place, they believe it to be Paul Morris.

Mr Morris, 41, from South Shore, Blackpool, was washed into the sea by a wave while walking a dog with a friend in the early hours of New Year's Day.

Despite coastguard and RAF Sea King searches around Blackpool's south pier and sea wall, his body was not recovered at the time.
