Over 150 plants, some over 5ft tall, was found in Kingston in Surrey today by a member of the public.

Police were called in and response officers reported the substantial growing farm. 

"The area these plants were growing on was the size of a football pitch, it looked like a small forest of Christmas trees and was complete with a gazebo," said Pc Sarah Henderson, of Kingston borough,.

"Whoever set this up used a really remote spot; the only way to get there was a 20 minute walk through wasteland. But all their time, trouble and gardening skills will go unrewarded, as the whole lot will now be destroyed by police."
