A CANNABIS farm has been destroyed after it was discovered by police officers.

A warrant was executed at a home on Spring Hill in Accrington on Wednesday, with several plants found inside.

The set-up has now been dismantled and the drugs will be destroyed.

A police spokesman said: “Drugs affect people in many ways - the sale, use and production are relied on heavily by criminals who in turn affect our neighbourhoods and communities by preying on the vulnerable.

“The production of drugs is not acceptable in our neighbourhoods and the Neighbourhood Task Force, along with colleagues from the neighbourhood policing teams, work relentlessly to disrupt and cease criminal activities.

“If you have any drug related issues in your area you can use Lancashire Talking (http://orlo.uk/MUewg) to provide us with any information you may have, the more specific the better. Names, Vehicles, times and dates are extremely useful.

“The information you provide is used as part of the application process for search warrants at court and as a result you directly assist us in the work that we do.”
