A forest of cannabis found growing in London


A forest of cannabis has been found by police officers on disused land in London. The area used was approximately the size of a football pitch. All 150 of the plants are to be destroyed, some of which were over 5ft tall.

Police were alerted by a member of public of a suspected cannabis farm in Kingston which is in the south of London.

PC Sarah Henderson said: “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.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.”

No one has yet been arrested.
