Huge cannabis farm discovered in Oldham

Police have thanked the public for helping to uncover a huge cannabis farm in Oldham.

Officers from the Glodwick and St Mary's policing unit seized dozens of plants - which were at various stages of maturity - during a raid at a house on Huxley Street, off Lees Road, on Monday. 

Images shared by Greater Manchester Police's Oldham team on Twitter showed the set-up, including a lighting system, pots containing cannabis plants and a fan. 

It is not thought any arrests have been made yet and the exact amount of cannabis seized hasn't been revealed. 

The post read: "Cannabis Farm located at Huxley Street in Oldham. A big thank you to the public who shared intelligence. Glodwick and St Mary's Policing team acted promptly. Please ring 101 and report any suspicious circumstances."
