His Renault Clio hit a Peugeot 207 and then an Alfa Romeo saloon, police said.

Officers said a couple in the saloon, from Coventry, were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the Peugeot and his wife, who are from Scotland and were in Blackpool on holiday, were unhurt.
