Police officers from the Sheffield North West Neighbourhood Policing Team discovered the set-up at a property in the Stannington area of the city earlier this week.

A spokesperson for the team said electrics had been bypassed at the property to assist the illegal cannabis operation, “posing a risk to the occupant and other residents.”

They added: “Not sure who the resident was expecting, but his nice array of weapons suggested we wouldn't have been greeted with a cuppa if they were in.
