Police In West Yorkshire Seize 70 Per Cent More Cannabis

The number of cannabis plants seized by West Yorkshire Police soared by more than 70 per cent last year, according to new figures. West Yorkshire bucked the downward national trend in 2014 for the number of seizures of illegal plants, with 15,327 taken by the county’s police compared with 8,960 in 2013.

Nationwide, a third of police forces saw an increase between 2013 and 2014, though the overall number of seizures dropped 10 per cent.

Business Manager at Direct Line for Business said: “The consequences of a cannabis farm on a landlord’s property can be financially catastrophic. Landlords could face loss of rent and the stress of the legal wrangling during periods of repair or eviction.”
