Police have found 168 cannabis plants in a raid on a house in Lancashire.

Officers who searched the house in Blackpool Old Road, Poulton, on Tuesday found a cannabis factory spanning three rooms, with growing equipment.

No-one was in the house at the time but an investigation is under way to find those responsible.

Insp Nigel Greenwood described it as "an extensive set up" and said the seizure would cause disruption to the local supply chain.

He said: "Drugs and drug dealing blight our local communities and we are dedicated to tackling this problem, along with the associated crime that can occur as result of drug abuse.

"I would urge anyone with information about drugs to contact officers so that we can take positive action."
