Booby-trapped cannabis farm raid in Bedford

About 600 cannabis plants have been seized and two people arrested in a raid on a booby-trapped Bedford house.

Police found the cannabis factory in a building in Victoria Road on Thursday after members of the public reported a strong smell coming from the property.

Police narrowly avoided injury as a bottle of water wired to the mains electric had been placed over the front door to deter intruders.

Two men were arrested at the property, said police.
