Detective Sergeant Jason Robinson says "some of the biggest drugs seizures we have made
this year have been made in very rural locations across Cumbria"
Cumbria police are urging rural communities to help battle drug problems in the county.
It comes after officers discovered five cannabis farms - some in rural locations - between February and March.
Around £1 million worth of cannabis has been seized and 29 people have been arrested.
Officers are urging farmers and people living in villages to watch out for any suspicious activity in remote buildings.
