Officers found four rooms with 90 plants

Two men were found hiding in a loft when police discovered a cannabis farm estimated to be worth up to £200,000.

Officers found 90 plants – up to 1.4m (4ft 7in) tall – across four rooms at the property in Grindleton Avenue, Manchester, on Saturday.

The electric meter for the property had been bypassed.

A 20-year-old man and a 29-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of cannabis production and abstracting electricity and remain in custody for questioning.
