Cannabis seized in Brierfield house raid

Cannabis worth £180,000 has been seized in a raid on a four bedroom house in Brierfield, Lancashire.

Police found 300 plants in the raid on Massey Street on Thursday, following concern from residents.

Pc Brian Magee said: "This was an extremely sophisticated commercial cultivation operation which had clearly been in place for some time.

"The cannabis ranged from seedlings to mature plants, some of which were up to 7ft (2.1m) tall."

He added: "We are aware of concerns about drugs in the area after residents raised the issue."
