Syed, of Limbrey Drive, Milton Keynes, was subsequently jailed for six years.

A spokesman for Lancashire Police said: "The stop of the vehicle was made as part of ongoing Op Warrior, which was set up to target individuals and gangs involved in crime, as well as associated issues such as violence and intimidation, large scale drug supply, exploitation and fraud, all of which can cause serious harm to local communities.
