A CANNABIS farm has been discovered yards away from a city-centre police station.

More than 300 plants, worth £100,000, were found on the third floor of a disused multi-storey warehouse after a blaze in the building, which is 40 yards away from, and opposite, Manchester’s Bootle Street station.

It is thought the fire may have been started by an electrical short circuit that affected lighting used to grow the plants.
