Ten people were arrested and £8,000 in cash seized after police executed six warrants in a bid to tackle the drugs problem in Lancashire.

Over the last few weeks, officers in Chorley and South Ribble have apprehended 10 people, three of whom were foreign nationals currently living in Birmingham, with one also wanted for a violent robbery.

Another of the 10 was a man from Merseyside, which police say demonstrates the county lines issues currently prevalent in the area.

A spokesperson for the police said: "County lines is where organised crime groups often use vulnerable people to transport drugs across local authority areas.

"As a result of the warrants we have taken a significant amount of class A drugs off the streets as well as seizing over £8000 in cash.

"Thank you to the public who provided us some valuable information to be able to execute these warrants.

"Going forward we will continue to target the crime groups coming onto our patch.

"You the public are key to this so if you have any information about drug dealing in your area contact us on 101 or call crime stoppers on 0800555111."
