A cannabis farm was busted by police after officers swooped on a house in Liverpool.

Police confirmed almost 80 plants were discovered after a morning raid on a home in Tuebrook .

Officers raided the home in Antrim Street at around 7.30am on Friday, September 8.

Once inside the house a cannabis farm which could have netted around £300,000 a year was found spread across three rooms.

A total of 78 plants including 44 growing plants, 31 cropped plant stalks and three dead cannabis plants were unearthed.

Police have removed the plants and sophisticated hydroponic growing equipment. The electricity was also found to have been illegally bypassed.

Sergeant Nicola Hamilton said: "This cannabis farm contained 78 plants and would have an estimated annual yield of more than £300,000.

"Cannabis cultivation by criminal gangs can cause serious harm in our communities. Criminal groups involved in the cultivation of cannabis are usually involved in other serious organized crime and they often rent residential properties such as this.

"Our communities can help us stop these groups, who are only interested in making money, from turning houses and flats into potential death traps. Nobody wants to live next door to these houses and we would ask that if you believe someone is using a property for this purpose, please tell us so we can take positive action and find those responsible for setting them up.

"The people who set up these farms often tamper with the electricity meters to steal electricity, and there will generally be a number of hot lamps hooked to overloaded electricity sockets as well as an extensive watering system.

"Electricity and water are never a good combination, and the fire service have seen an increase in the number of fires they have been called to as a result of fires caused by the crude systems put in place by the people who set up these farms."
