The force said parts of Stockbridge Village were also scoured as part of an open land search, after the community told police they were concerned about weapons and drugs being hidden.

Land near the rear of Poole Hey, Little Moss Hey and an area near Meadow Park School was searched.

Officers recovered knives and scissors that were shockingly concealed.
