A 53-year-old man from Surrey was arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis and has since been released from custody pending further enquiries.

‘The money made from the sale of these drugs would have ended up in criminal hands, leading to further crime and anti-social behaviour.

‘I am pleased we have taken these illegal drugs out of circulation and officers are working to establish more details about those who ran the site.’
