There have been no arrests and enquires continue, to find those responsible for cultivating the plants
“Whoever set this up used a really remote spot; the only way to get there was a 20 minute walk through wasteland. But all their time, trouble and gardening skills will go unrewarded, as the whole lot will now be destroyed by police.” the police said
