A CANNABIS farm was discovered in Colne.

Officers discovered more than 80 mature plants in a building in the town on Saturday.

A police spokesman said: "Your local neighbourhood police teams and Colne immediate response teams worked collaboratively to shut down a cannabis production which was just about to be harvested.

"Approx 80 mature plants were present and this closure has now prevented illicit funds being used by organised crime gangs in our communities."
