The police have discovered a large cannabis factory in County Fermanagh.

Seven hundred plants were discovered in a rural property near Coa, about 5 miles from Enniskillen.

It is believed the haul is worth £280,000. One man, a foreign national, has been arrested.

The house was being rented and the police have appealed to landlords to be vigilant as they believe there may be other properties in isolated rural areas being used as cannabis factories.

Electrical engineers spent some hours making the property safe.

Hundreds of pounds worth of damage had been caused to it.
