Sgt Niamh O’Donoghue said enquiries are ongoing to find those behind the drugs haul.

She added: “We are now trying to find out who is responsible for the set up.

“We will continue to do everything we can to remove cannabis from our streets and I urge anyone with information or concerns to contact us.”

Coun Elaine Silverwood, who represents Kirkham at Fylde Council, has praised the work of the police and the community.

She said: “This is all down to local intelligence and great policing between the community and the Kirkham policing team.

“This kind of activity is not something that we want in Kirkham, but we have to accept that it goes on in most areas and most towns, whether they area urban or rural.

“It is good news that these drugs are now off the streets thanks to a very successful operation.”
