Sergeant Lee Thompson, of Canterbury’s Community Policing Team, said: ‘The profits made from cultivation sites of this kind invariably end up in the hands of criminal groups and I am glad we have taken these drugs out of circulation.

‘I would urge anyone who believes illegal drugs may be being grown, produced or sold in their area to contact Kent Police through our website, by calling 101, or dialling 999 if a crime is in progress.’
