BBC Radio Lancashire was forced off air this morning when a flood required the evacuation of its studios in Blackburn.

Graham Liver's breakfast show had to be abruptly abandoned at around 8.30, with the reason behind the flood currently unknown.

The fire alarm subsequently went off, with Liver updating listeners via his Twitter feed from outside the building.

The station played an emergency tape before joining up with BBC Radio Manchester. Normal service was resumed by around 10am.
