The raid was carried out by Fylde Rural Task Force who obtained a warrant to enter and search the home in Stubblefield Drive last week, a new estate off Squires Gate Lane and Clifton Drive North.

The man has since been released under investigation.

Lancashire Police said the raid was part of Operation Warrior, the force's response to tackling serious and organised crime in the county.

It aims to target the individuals and gangs involved in crime, as well as related issues such as violence and intimidation, large scale drug supply, exploitation, and fraud.
