It was billed as the Last Chance to Dance and 1,300 ravers grabbed it with both hands...in the air.

The farewell to the Carleton club on Saturday night was a massive event for Morecambe pulling in dance music lovers from far and wide.

Glow sticks, laser beams, MCs yelling ‘make some noise!’ and a packed dancefloor took a generation back to when the West End club was famed for all-night raves.

The Carleton is due to be converted into flats but owner Ian Bond has not ruled out future one-off events before that happens.
