AROUND 30 suspected cannabis plants were found by officers in a morning raid on a farmhouse.

Police arrived at the farm in Tosside, Ribble Valley, at around 9.30am on Tuesday where they discovered the plants.

A police spokesman said: “Two men aged 28 and 31 were arrested on suspicion of producing cannabis.”

A skip loader, which was suspected to have been stolen, was also found.

The men have now been released under investigation.

A witness living nearby said they saw around 10 police vehicles heading ‘slowly and quietly’ towards the farm and that there was lots of activity throughout the day with police, utility supplies and recovery vehicles on the scene.
