West Yorkshire Police said the operation was one of several raids in the area as part of ‘Neighborhood Policing Week of Action’.

The force encourages people to continue providing information about crime in their communities.

Inspector Graham Dyson, of the Huddersfield NPT, said: “Every day for me is Neighborhood Policing (NPT) day.

“However, having the national focus on NPT allows us to highlight the fantastic work that is being done every day across the city.

“We are constantly evaluating and reviewing drug information with a view to obtaining and executing warrants where possible.

“I am acutely aware of the damage drugs cause to communities, and it is fantastic that the hard work of my team has once again uncovered another cannabis farm and stopped the sale of drugs on our streets.”

He added: “I would like to encourage everyone to continue to support our efforts to target those involved in drug production with a view to making our communities safer.

“If anyone has any information regarding drug production or any other crime please do not hesitate to contact West Yorkshire Police.”

Anyone with information about crime in their area should call 101. Information can also be submitted anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
