A Cannabis factory with an estimated street value of £14,500 was uncovered by police in a former Blackpool hotel.

Officers made the discovery at the property on Kirby Road, previously the Glendene Hotel after a resident reported a strong smell coming from the building.

Around 290 plants were discovered in the property, spread out over four bedrooms. Lighting and cultivation equipment was also found.

Det Sgt Jane Atkinson from Blackpool CID said: “We discovered this cannabis factory thanks to information we received from a member of the public and this, once again, highlights the importance of the public working with us to pass on information about suspicious activity.

“As a result of this discovery, a substantial amount of cannabis has now been taken off the streets of Blackpool.

“We will not tolerate the supply or use of drugs in our communities. We will continue to take robust action against those who are thought to be involved in drugs and I urge residents to pass any suspicions about drugs on to the police.”

No arrests have been made in connection with the cannabis factory but officers continue to make enquiries.
