Police have seized a 'significant' amount of cannabis from a house in Burnley.

On Tuesday, acting on information from the community, officers found a cannabis farm in a house on Bank Parade.

Police say the grow will be disposed of and the equipment used for cultivation donated.

Posting on social media, officers joked with the public that unfortunately there wasn't a 'like and share' option to win the plants, merely an opportunity for them to tell the community how they rely on tip-offs in order to take drugs like these off the streets.

A spokesperson for the police said: "After great information from the public we have seized a significant amount of cannabis from an address on Bank Parade.

"We rely on this information and connection with the public in order to take drugs off your streets.

"Neighbourhood, task force and response officers seized this amount of cannabis.

"We love a good joke but unfortunately there isn't a 'like and share' option to win the contents of the address.

"The amount of cannabis will be disposed of and equipment has been donated to a fantastic cause. Great bit of community engagement.

"Keep providing us with this type of information through 101, crime stoppers and Lancashire Talking."
