Police find cannabis grow in Wensleydale industrial unit

Police have found a large cannabis farm in an industrial unit in Hawes.

North Yorkshire Police say they received information from a member of the public about suspicious circumstances at a building in the town.

Officers attended just after 2pm today and found a large cannabis grow inside.

Two men at the scene were arrested.

It is understood the unit is on the Upper Wensleydale Business Park, off Brunt Acres Road.

Locals say the business unit raided by police was thought to have been empty for a number of years.

Police say the arrested men remain in custody this evening and enquiries are continuing.

A spokesperson said: “As always, we are grateful to the local community for any information linked to illegal drugs.

“Your information could be crucial in helping us shut down similar operations.”
