A 'LARGE' cannabis farm was found in a house in Burnley.

Police officers and Electricity North West were called to the drugs set up in Briercliffe Road .

A police spokesman said a large fuse that had been removed by the electricity board had melted and badly burnt.

The spokesman said: "This is a serious safety and fire risk and could have ended in disaster if we had not taken action.

"If you see something suspicious, please report it to us via 101 or anonymously through Crimestoppers and we will act.

"We have now started an investigation into this."
