Several hundred bags of compost seized during a raid on a Cambridgeshire cannabis farm have been donated to a charity supporting the homeless.

The compost was found after police "sniffed out" the 7,000 cannabis plants, worth an estimated £6m, in an industrial unit in Soham on Thursday.

Emmaus Cambridge will use the compost for a new fruit and vegetable garden.

The charity supports formerly homeless people by giving them a place to live and work.

One person arrested on suspicion of producing cannabis has been released on bail.
