The car was eventually dumped on Patricroft Road in Ince and two suspects were arrested. Police found 10 wraps of heroin, one wrap of cocaine and a “quantity” of cannabis all ready to be sold.

The two men remain in custody.

An officer from GMP Wigan West said: "I know this has been a concern for residents in this area and reports have been made, this is a good result for the people of this area to see two drug dealers and their drugs removed from the streets."
