Roughly 200 plants, growing equipment and weapons were seized from the unit.

No arrests have been made, police said, but enquiries are said to be ongoing.

Sgt Alice Draper said: “This warrant was a result of information from the public and really highlights the difference people make in notifying us of suspicious activity in their area.
