A MAN is due to appear at Cambridge Crown Court on Thursday charged a conspiracy to produce cannabis after police discovered more than 7,500 plants at a barn in Haddenham.

Forty-year-old Kevin Hart, of Elm Close in Huntingdon, will appear before a judge in Cambridge charged in connection with the �2.5 million cannabis haul discovered by officers following a raid in the village in July.

Hart did not enter a plea to a charge of conspiracy to produce cannabis when he appeared before magistrates in Cambridge earlier this week. He was remanded in custody ahead of his appearance at Crown court.

The 40-year-old is the fifth man to be charged in connection to the haul, which officers estimated could have been worth �10 million if allowed to reach full maturity. A sixth man was released on bail by officers.

Kyle Green, 24, of Primrose Lane, Huntingdon; Craig Green, 29, of Primrose Lane, Huntingdon and Michael Orchard, 40, of Orchard Close, Warboys, were all charged with conspiracy to produce a class B drug.

Marcus Burton, 44, of Montfort Way, Cambridge, was charged by police with producing cannabis.
