Officers executed a warrant at a house on Avenue Parade on Tuesday, November 6.

Det Insp Mark Winstanley, from Blackburn CID, said the drugs are yet to be forensically tested but are believed to be cannabis resin, weighing around 150kg.

He said: “This is a seizure of a huge amount of cannabis resin which is likely to have a significant street value.
