Officers from Cambridgeshire police uncovered a cannabis factory in an industrial estate in Fen Road, Milton yesterday (May 12) where they found 51 cannabis plants.

Two men, aged 37 and 42, were arrested on suspicion of producing cannabis and remain in custody.

Detective Inspector Dave Savill: “Drugs can have a devastating impact on people’s lives and often go hand in hand with other types of criminality.

“I would encourage those who have suspicions of illegal activity to report them to us, no matter how insignificant it may seem.
