This comes around a week after officers discovered a separate, bigger cannabis factory in the East Cambridgeshire market town.

Officers on patrol noticed a strong smell coming from an industrial unit in Regal Drive.

Once they got inside they discovered around 7,000 cannabis plants believed to be worth up to £6 million.

A man was arrested.

Hundreds of bags of compost from this original facility were donated to Cambridge homeless charity Emmaus by Cambridgeshire Police.

Cambridgeshire Police say they are not currently connecting the two cannabis factories.
