A 'SUBSTANTIAL' amount of cannabis has been seized during a drugs raid in a Hampshire village.

Police swooped on a property in Bourne Lane, Woodlands in the New Forest, on Tuesday.

Officers, helped by a police dog, confiscated "two large holdalls" packed with cannabis.

Other items were also seized reportedly used for drug dealing.

An investigation has now been launched.

A post on the New Forest Heart Cops Facebook page said: "Earlier today the new Forest Heart Neighbourhood police team (and Libby the drugs dog) executed a drugs warrant at an address on The Copse, Bourne Lane at Woodlands. A substantial amount of cannabis was found in two large holdalls and has been seized along with other items used in the supply of drugs. A female at the property was given a community resolution for personal possession of cannabis and a full investigation into the supply of drugs is now underway.
