A 34-year-old man from St Helens was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply drugs and has been taken into custody for questioning.

Local Policing Sergeant Paul Meath said: "This significant recovery will take away a large amount of suspected drugs out of circulation in St Helens. Drugs were stored in the house including the freezer, which in itself is extremely reckless. 

“Communities are vital in providing information which enables such positive action to be taken, and we will act on all information given. We need to stand together to take drugs out of circulation, as they lead to further criminality and harm.
