Cannabis farm found at Hadrian Enterprise Park

Thousands of cannabis plants have been discovered in a warehouse on an industrial estate in the Tyne Valley.

Officers executing a search warrant raided the unit at Hadrian Enterprise Park in Haltwhistle, Northumberland, where they found thousands of plants.

Northumbria Police also seized drug cultivating equipment during the raid on Friday night.

A spokesman said finding a cannabis farm of such a large scale was "unusual".
