Lancashire Road Police found a ‘horrendous looking knife’ while stopping a driver in Preston.
Police pulled over a driver suspected of having no insurance before finding an extraordinary knife.
One person was arrested but further details have not been released by Police.
Last month the BBC released nine charts relating to knife crime in the UK, one of showed knives as the predominant tool now used in homicides.
London understandably has the highest knife crime rates in the UK, but the North West has seen its share of these types of crimes – ranking fourth overall.
Punishment for knife-related offences has also been on the rise over the last few years as authorities look to get a grip on the rising danger of knife crime.
