They found about 300 cannabis plants, worth £30,000-£50,000, at the properties in Canadia Road on Monday.

Sussex Police said cannabis was also found packaged, ready for delivery.

The woman, another aged 53, and a 55-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of involvement in producing class B drugs and were bailed until 1 March.
