Chief Inspector Sue Bushell from Preston Police said: “We will not tolerate those found in possession of knives in public, and I want to reassure residents that we take any report of knife crime extremely seriously.

“We will continue to use all appropriate powers available to us to keep communities safe and we would ask people to be vigilant and to provide us with information about knife crime if they believe it is happening in their area.”

In a separate incident, we also have two people waiting to be questioned on suspicion of drugs offences after a search of a property in Preston yesterday.

During patrols, and after witnessing suspicious activity, officers entered a house on Walton’s Parade and found a substantial amount of what’s thought to be a Class A drug along with a number of mobile phones.

A 21-year-old man and a 32-year-old woman who are both from Preston are under arrest on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a Class A drug and enquiries are ongoing.
