Lancashire Police Tactical Operations seized dozens of plants this morning after spotting the van in question with fog lights on while lane hopping.

A spokesperson for the Lancashire Police Tactical Operations said: "When you're moving your cannabis plants around, probably not a good idea to be lane hogging with your fog lights on. It tends to draw our attention. "Thousands of £'s of cannabis seized and driver arrested. They had no insurance or licence either."

.The news follows Blackpool South Neighbourhood Policing Team and Task Force shutting down a cannabis farm in a matter of hours on Thursday evening.
