A STASH of drugs was sniffed out by a dog while it was out on a walk in Barton.

The supply was uncovered on Wednesday, by the clever canine belonging to a member of the public. 

Officers from the Barton, Risinghurst and Sandhills neighbourhood police team said they seized about 70 wraps of drugs thanks to the dog walker's discovery.
