Police uncovered a cannabis farm hidden within a disguised industrial unit in Poulton.

Officers found the “sophisticated” cannabis farm with more than 240 plants, at various stages of growth, and large bags of dried out cannabis bush ready for sale.

Lancashire Police carried out a search on the unit this weekend, finding a hidden room with disguised access shielding the farm from view.

PC Dave Kerfoot said: “As part of the ongoing investigation in to the supply of cocaine and cannabis in the Garstang area we executed a search warrant.

“Found inside the unit was a hidden room with disguised access, which, when found and entered, revealed a sophisticated cannabis grow.”

A 46-year-old man, originally from the Liverpool area, has been arrested in connection with the incident. He is currently on police bail.
