£2m of cannabis found

The biggest cannabis factory Thames Valley Police have ever found has been discovered in Buckinghamshire.

Around a thousand plants were contained within an industrial unit at Wescott, near Aylesbury.  It's thought the drugs were worth around £2m.

The plants were growing in 18 shipping containers placed side by side inside the warehouse.

Detective Chief Inspector Rebecca Mears said: "This is one of the largest cannabis factories we have discovered so far. It's a sophisticated set-up and I would estimate the street value of the drugs we have seized to be well over £2 million."

Two 29-year-old men from Aylesbury, Thomas Waite and Martin Walker, have been charged with production of a class B drug. Walker was also charged with supplying a class B drug.

The raid was carried out as a result of intelligence work by Thames Valley Police.
