Cannabis seizure

A MAN and a woman have been cautioned after a cannabis farm was found at a Wigan home.

Police had raided the address in Newton Road, Lowton, on Monday afternoon after officers on patrol in the area picked up a strong smell of the Class B drug coming from the property.

A spokesman said that on gaining access at around 2.30pm they discovered several dozen cannabis plants in the house.

A 59-year-old man and 53-year-old woman were arrested and later cautioned for cultivating cannabis.

The plants have since been confiscated by officers.
