A man has been arrested following the discovery of a large cannabis farm in Lancashire.

Officers from the Chorley neighbourhood policing team attended an address on Sunny Brow, Coppull, yesterday (July 8) and found a set-up with more than 200 cannabis plants.

Police said there was also evidence the electricity had been bypassed, causing significant disruption throughout the property.

Electricity Northwest attended to ensure the area was safe and the grow has been dismantled.

A 42-year-old man was arrested at the scene and is in custody being questioned on suspicion of cannabis cultivation, and an investigation is now underway.
