A huge cannabis farm has been discovered by police during Storm Emma.
The property’s roof gave the game away, as it was the only one on the street not to be covered in snow.
Two officers raided the property in Keighley, West Yorks.
PC Caroline Foster said: ‘Whilst the snow has kept the burglars at bay it has also helped us in finding some rather large plants.. ‘Hmmm, I wonder why there is no snow on your roof? 280+ plants seized from an address in Keighley today, some nearly 6ft tall.
A police spokesperson said: ‘Officers attended at the house on a street near to Arctic Street at about 2pm on March 1 following community intelligence.
