A MASSIVE cannabis farm capable of producing an estimated £250,000 worth of the drug has been found by police in a disused Rugby industrial unit.

Officers found 545 cannabis plants and several hundred more seedlings at a disused unit at Glebe Farm Industrial Estate yesterday (Tuesday March 8).

They were responding to reports of strange smells in the area and fertiliser left outside the premises.

Plants and seedlings were seized along with high value equipment used in the cultivation process. Power supplies to the unit had been bypassed and were made safe by the energy supplier.

The premises were unoccupied at the time, and enquiries are ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 quoting reference 154 of March 8. Reports can also be made anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
