Thousands of cannabis plants with an estimated street value of £1.2m have been found in central Glasgow.

Police acting under warrant discovered the illegal cannabis farm at premises in Bridge Street, near the River Clyde, at 19:15 on Tuesday.

Two men, aged 16 and 17, and a 20-year-old woman, were arrested following the intelligence-led operation and are being held in custody.

All three are expected to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Thursday.

Det Insp Ian Hylands, from Strathclyde Police, said: "This is a significant recovery and demonstrates once again our determination to rid our communities of drugs.

"We will continue to cause as much disruption as we can to prevent drugs from getting onto our streets where they can do untold damage to families and communities."
