Operation California hit the streets of the resort last Saturday night – a joint operation involving East Lindsey District Council, Lincolnshire Special Police, Lincolnshire Police volunteers, Skegness Police and the RAF police.

This was just weeks after a similar operation which saw increased police presence in the town throughout the Easter Bank Holiday.

As before, officers and volunteers visited pubs and clubs checking for drugs.

Coast Insp Colin Haigh said: “The latest operation covered Ingoldmells and Skegness and over 20 misuse of drugs searches were carried out.

“The RAF police have been working with us to provide the drugs dog and I am really grateful for their contribution.
