Cannabis farm yields 2,000 plants
A multi-million pound cannabis farm has been uncovered in Kent after police raided an industrial unit.

The "sophisticated hydroponics farm", in Whitehall Road, Ramsgate, had more than 2,000 cannabis plants in various stages of growth.

Officers searching the building on Monday morning found the farm had an irrigation system and nurseries.

Det Insp Nick Greenan said the factory had the potential to produce millions of pounds worth of drugs.

He added that the building would be emptied and the plants destroyed.

Kent Police said no arrests had yet been made in connection with the find.
