OFFICERS from Barnsley located a cannabis farm last weekend with a value in excess of £1m.

At around 4.20pm on Saturday, officers from Barnsley South Neighbourhood Policing Team located the cannabis factory in an industrial unit on Hemingfield Road, Wombwell.

Enquiries are currently ongoing to establish who was responsible for the farm.

Sergeant Kev Jenkins said: “We are aware of local community concerns regarding the use of controlled drugs within our neighbourhood area and this will have a significant impact on the supply of drugs within Barnsley.”
