A huge cannabis farm containing more than 2,000 plants was discovered after a raid on a property in Bradford.

West Yorkshire Police set up a cordon on Morley Street, Bradford, on 21 September after reports that "potentially hazardous materials" might be on site.

The force said no such materials were found but officers seized more than 2,000 plants worth a potential value of £300,000.

Enquiries are ongoing to find out who used the building.
