Pictures shared by police show one of the knives had a 21cm blade, with the other measuring 17cm.

“While this was a startling discovery for the attending officers, we would like to reassure communities that knife crime is less than one per cent of crime in Lancashire,” a spokesman for Lancashire Police said.

“We take all reports of offences involving knives extremely seriously.”
