POLICE have busted a cannabis growing operation at a disused Blackpool hotel.
Officers were called in to the Bowness Hotel at just before 3pm yesterday after members of the public reported their suspicions.
Inside the premises on South Promenade, police found a complicated cultivation system involving a hydroponic feeding set-up, growing lamps and ventilation.
Detectives have now launched an inquiry to find out the identity of the people responsible for the operation.
