A Merseyside Police spokeswoman said: "We attended at Seddon Street at 1.45pm on Tuesday and found 34 cropped cannabis plants and associated growing equipment in a house.

"No arrests were made. Enquiries are ongoing."

Anyone with information about suspected drug production can contact @MerPolCC, 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

Some of the signs that cannabis is being grown are:

• Strange smells and sounds

• Frequent and varied visitors to a property, often at unusual times

• Gardening equipment being taken into a property, such as plant pots, fertiliser, fans and industrial lighting

• Windows are sealed and covered or the curtains are permanently closed

• Heat from an adjoining property

• Birds gathering on a roof in cold weather

• Individually these activities may seem commonplace, however, together may indicate something more sinister
