A man has been arrested on suspicion of drugs offences after police on the Isle of Man discovered a cannabis farm.

Officers seized about 80 cannabis plants being grown at a property in the north of the island on Wednesday.

A spokesman for the Isle of Man Constabulary said the haul "had a yield potentially worth about £43,000".

He added that as well as being illegal, the lights and fans involved in growing cannabis can pose an electrical hazard.
