Huge number of plants removed.
Today, 28th October 2021 Blackpool Neighbourhood Taskforce, alongside Blackpool North Neighbourhood Team, Blackpool Counil and Electricity North West have executed a drugs warrant on Dickson Road, Blackpool.
As a result of this, around 230 Cannabis plants have been removed and the premises put under a prohibition by the council. This information has come directly from community concerns and has enabled a warrant to be obtained from the courts and executed.
Whilst no arrests have been made, there is an investigation ongoing to identify the individuals involved.
This is not just about removing Cannabis from the streets. These premises are some of the most dangerous and cause significant fire risks for everyone around it.
As you can see in the photos, the large banks of transformers and plug sockets can overload the system and cause fires. In conjunction the fire alarm has been disabled.
This was a business premises and is attached to other buildings so a fire can be devastating for the local residents if a fire breaks out.
