SEVERAL snap-bags and a kinder egg containing a large haul of drugs were found discarded in a wooded area.

Officers searching for a wanted male came across the find after on of their police dogs picked up human scent from the items.

A Lancashire police spokesman said: “PD Apol located these hidden in wooded area whilst off lead searching for a wanted male.

“He isn't a drugs dog but located these due to the human scent left on them, I dread to think if kids had found these especially the kids kinder egg which would attract their attention.”
