The combined weight of the drugs, which were in boxes and bags, is about 40kg.

The house was secured and during a further search of the property today, Tuesday 28 June, a further 40kg of cannabis resin was found hidden in the kitchen.

The estimated street value of all the drugs recovered is £400,000.

A 58-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of possession of cannabis with intent to supply and remains in police custody.

"To recover such a large amount is a great result for the police but more importantly the people of Salford."
