In an operation led by the Hull Central Neighbourhood Team, supported by #OpGalaxy, the teams conducted a warrant at the property as part of ongoing enforcement action against organised criminality.

PC Tim McGowan said: “Whilst no-one was located within the property and enquiries are ongoing to determine those responsible, I am confident the seizure of these plants and equipment will significantly disrupt their operation.

“These cannabis grows put others living in the area at risk due to the dangerous abstraction of electricity used to power them.

“Our investigation will continue and I would encourage anyone with information about this grow, or any other suspicious activity taking place in their area, to contact us on 101, or report anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
