Describing the scene, PC Sarah Henderson said

“The area these plants were growing on was the size of a football pitch, it looked like a small forest of Christmas trees and was complete with a gazebo.

There have been no arrests and enquires continue, to find those responsible for cultivating the plants

Officers said the “small forest” of cannabis plants covered an area the size of a football pitch and was complete with a gazebo

“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
