Around £10,000 worth of drugs have been found by police during a house raid.

Officers carried out the raid at a property in Fir Street in Nelson earlier in the week.

While no one has been arrested for this particular incident, officers say a number of people have been apprehended for suspected drugs offences at other locations across the county.

A spokesperson for the police said: "Over the last four days we have arrested a number of people for suspected drug offences within Lancashire, including a warrant that took place on Fir Street in Nelson.

"When we searched through the address, we discovered approximately £10,000 worth of drugs, we will continue the investigations and seek to locate the offender.

"Our message to the criminals is clear; if you are involved in criminality you are not welcome on our streets and we will find you, sooner rather than later.

"We will leave no stone unturned in our efforts to make our streets safer.

"We know that normal, decent people are being affected by the actions of those involved in drugs and associated criminality, including violence and we are determined to tackle them, as well as seizing criminal assets and putting that money back into our efforts to keep people safe.

"We need communities to continue to work with us to let us know who these people are and what they are involved in.

"If you suspect that drugs are being circulated in your area, please continue to help us to help you by sharing what you know."
