CANNABIS plants with a street value of around £1,000 were seized during a raid in Knottingley this week.

A 25-year-old man was arrested and questioned after officers from Pontefract and Knottingley neighbourhood policing team (NPT) swooped in on an address in Pinewood Place on Tuesday.

Eight plants and growing equipment were removed from the Warwick estate property after officers received information from the public.

Sgt Alan Studd of the NPT said: “Here we acted upon information received from the public and this is another great result.

“If anyone has any information of any crime they can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
