A bus driver accidentally revealed a suspected secret cannabis farm on Thursday, when he crashed into a house.
Police believe the driver suffered a “medical episode” at the wheel when he careered into the two-storey house in Walton, Breck Road at around 10:30am.
Emergency services were called to the scene involving the Stagecoach single-decker, and the driver, who is in his 60s, was taken to hospital.
He, and the eight passengers on board, escaped with minor injuries.
The single-storey house was partially demolished by fire-fighters, but the process had to stop to secure a suspected gas leak, the Liverpool Echo reported.
Assessing the scene, firefighters later found the remains of a cannabis farm, including a handful of plants, in the empty house.
A Merseyside Police spokesman said: “Following the incident, officers discovered a number of cannabis plants at a neighbouring property. Officers from the Cannabis Dismantling Team are in attendance and inquiries into the incident are under way.”Reuse content
