The parcel was handed over to officers by post office staff who had concerns over its contents.

On opening the parcel, addressed to a property in Blackpool, officers found two plastic bags containing what is believed to be cannabis.

The parcel is no longer winging its way to the intended recipient but Blackpool Police are more than happy for the sender to claim it from Bonny Street police station.
