This was the second find of this nature for police as earlier in the week they discovered another cannabis farm at a house in Leyland Road in the town.

The discovery was made by chance as officers had been called out to investigate the property as it had been reported as being insecure.

A police spokesman said: "Please report any suspicious activity as cannabis farms can be potentially very dangerous as on most occasions the electric has been tampered with."
