POLICE found weapons, chainmail stab vests and a cannabis farm after they were led to a property by a car.

Officers from West Yorkshire Police's Batley and Spen Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) stopped and seized a black Audi A3 TDI on Easter Sunday, in the Batley area.

The driver did not have a valid driving licence and there was also a police-style baton in the car.

This was seized, alongside the vehicle, and then further police investigation into the car led officers to an address in the Batley area, where it had recently been linked.

Police went to the property yesterday and made entry.

The building was being used solely for the production of cannabis and there were also weapons and chainmail stab vests inside.

Officers dismantled the cannabis farm and seized the plants, as well as taking the other items.

Police are continuing their enquiries.

The car was initially stopped as part of Operation Tireminster.

The initiative is dedicated to upholding the driving standards on the roads in the Batley and Spen area.

It also aims to disrupt criminality within the area by targeting vehicles used for such endeavours.
