FOUR swords, a crossbow and 10 knives were seized during a police raid on a home in Burnley.

The weapons haul, seized from a home in Parkinson Street, Burnley Wood, will now be destroyed.

A 30-year-old man was arrested at the home on suspicion of possession of class B drugs.

It followed two earlier raids to coincide with the nationwide ‘Not in my Neighbourhood’ week.

The first warrant was executed at 8:30am today at a house in Wood Street, Burnley, where a 62-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of class B drugs.

Officers then moved onto Angle Street to execute a second warrant at around 10.30am.

No arrests were made but further inquiries are being conducted after police said suspected drugs paraphernalia was recovered.

Police raided Parkinson Street and seized the weapons on 12.30pm.

Neighbourhood Policing Sergeant Rodger Crew said: “These three warrants were carried out as part of a dedicated week of action designed to demonstrate the work being carried out by police and partner agencies to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour in our communities.

“Neighbourhood Team’s in all three of the areas are now speaking to local residents to tell them about our activity and reassure them that we are working hard to tackle their concerns.

“Neighbourhood policing like this is our day-to-day business in the Burnley and Padiham areas and the teams continue to make a real difference for our communities all year round.

"It is all about working together to give communities confidence in their public services.”
