A CANNABIS factory has been discovered in Widnes.

Around 100 plants were found in the cellar of a house in Mersey Road, West Bank, after police community support officers noticed a strange smell coming from the property.

Cannabis and equipment were seized at around 12.45pm yesterday.

A 32-year-old man was arrested and has been bailed pending further enquiries.

Inspector Ian Whiley, of Widnes Neighbourhood Policing Unit, said: "We are committed to tackling the issue of illegal drugs in the local community.

“We will not tolerate any sort of behaviour that has a negative impact on the lives of others.

"Residents can rest assured that positive action will be taken against anyone found to be involved in drug use or supply.”

Anyone with any information about illegal drugs in Widnes can call Cheshire Police on 101.
