POLICE officers ruined festivities for one drug dealer after seizing a huge stash of cannabis on Christmas Eve.

Officers shared on Facebook how they pulled over a man in Bolton for using his phone while driving.

A further search of the man's vehicle revealed 180 bags of cannabis, a significant amount of cash, and a large kitchen knife.

In a post on GMP Bolton South's Facebook page, the force said: "Waiting for your Xmas supply of cannabis to be delivered? It won't be arriving, nor your dealer, who is currently sat in our cells.

"Suspect was stopped in Bolton using his phone & driving. Later arrested for possession of a knife and drug dealing. #NaughtyList"
