PC Kat Stokes from Oswaldtwistle neighbourhood policing team said: “This was a very sophisticated set up which had clearly been going for some time. Clearly someone has been tending to the crop on a regular basis and we are carrying out forensic enquiries to find out who was responsible.

“Id like to thank members of the public for bring this to our attention and I hope people are reassured that the police do listen to concerns and will take action.”
