Police Inspector for the Lincolnshire Coast, Matthew Bennison, said: “We can confirm that three people have been arrested following the raid we undertook today, and they have been taken to Skegness so they can help us with our investigation.

“Items have been removed from an address in Victoria Road, with officers gaining access to the property via a passageway in Knowle Street.”
