A police spokesman said: "Cannabis cultivation and production is often linked to organised crime which is a common cause for other types of violent and acquisitive crimes, which brings misery to our local communities.

"If you have any information regarding drug production or supply in your local area please contact your local Neighbourhood Policing Team, call 101 or alternatively call the independent charity crime stoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
