A hidden 'forest of cannabis' was found in London

There were around 150 plants in total.

WE’RE FAMILIAR WITH reports on small seizures of cannabis plants being seized by police.

But how about an entire field?

Police in the United Kingdom responded to anonymous tip-off yesterday of small number of cannabis plants located in Kingston Upon Thames.

After a 20-minute trek through wasteland to a remote spot, they found them. And around 150 more.

PC Sarah Henderson said an area, roughly the size of a soccer pitch, was covered by the plants, themselves almost 1.5 metres tall.

It’ll be bad news for whoever went through the effort, she said:

“All their time, trouble and gardening skills will go unrewarded, as the whole lot will now be destroyed by police,” Henderson said.
