A police spokesman said: "In June last year we launched Operation Westhead - a week of action - to tackle drug dealing in the Chorley area.

"The result of one of the warrants led to the arrest of a local female Sandra Sharrock who was found in possession of a large quantity of Class A drugs and a large amount of cash.

"She was in the middle of "bagging up" the drugs when we hit the address.

"As a result, on February 4, 2021, 46-year-old Sharrock has been sentenced to 5 years and 7 months in prison.

"Yet again an excellent piece of work by Chorley and South Ribble Neighbourhood Task Force."
