A CANNABIS farm discovered in a residential home "had one of the most dangerous" electrical setups that a power company had ever seen.

Police found a house in Elgar Avenue had been converted into a large grow with varying ages of plants in different rooms of the address.

Officers from the Malvern safer neighbourhood policing team went to the home earlier this week (Monday, October 23).

PC Dave Olczak, of the Pickersleigh and Chase safer neighbourhood policing team, revealed that there were 55 plants in the attic alone, but nobody was found at the address.

He said: "Malvern neighbourhood officers attended the address around midday on Monday, October 22.

"Western Power had to be called out to make the electrics safe after the electric meter had been bypassed.

"Western Power advised that the electrical bypass was one of the most dangerous that they had seen. They were amazed that no one had been hurt in carrying it out."

An investigation is ongoing, led by the Pickersleigh and Chase safer neighbourhood policing team.

West Mercia Police encourages anyone with suspicions or knowledge of a cannabis grow, to contact them.
