Lancashire Police report they located and confiscated a large cannabis cultivation at an address on Great Townley Street (off New Hall Lane) in Preston last week.

They arrested a man at the address and he is currently on remand.

The rough initial valuation of the plants was approximately £120,000.

Police say this is another substantial amount of cannabis that has been removed from the streets. They continue to urge the community to keep intelligence coming in on cannabis growers.

They are a danger as most have dodgy electrics which can cause house fires.

This seizure was a result of community information which is greatly appreciated.

If you have any information to share call 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. In an emergency always call 999 .
