Machete recovered from undergrowth in West End

Police in Morecambe have recovered a machete from undergrowth in the West End.

The discovery, in a residential area, was made by PCSOs this week, as a campaign targeting knife crime continues.

Operation Sceptre aims to target those who are carrying weapons, raise awareness of the dangers and impacts of knife crime, and engage with retailers.
