The following article appeared in your morning paper:
Two teenagers took an early-hours rollercoaster joyride after breaking in to Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
The pair climbed over locked gates to take control of the theme park's Blue Flyer ride shortly after 04:00 BST.
"They flicked the switch and took a trip on the 82-year-old ride," confirmed reports.
A 15-year-old boy was given a community resolution order following Friday's break-in.
The two teenagers were on the ride for up to 30 minutes
A statement from Blackpool Pleasure Beach said: "They managed to operate the ride some time before security patrols discovered them at 04:50.
"From CCTV footage we understand the intruders were at the ride for up to 30 minutes.
"During this time two youths can be seen on the ride."
The statement added: "Following the break-in, the ride has been fully inspected and is operational and open to the public."
The Blue Flyer, based in the Nikelodeon Land section of the theme park, is a wooden rollercoaster designed for children.
Built in 1934, the ride lasts for 90 seconds and travels at a top speed of 15mph.
Community resolution orders are a way of dealing with low level crimes which do not result in the offender going to court or receiving a criminal record, Lancashire Police said.
One of the guilty boys and the one receiving Community Resolution is you son Nigel
Do you deal further with Nigel or is the Community Resolution his only penalty?
