A 59-year-old man has been arrested after 800 cannabis plants and 500 seedlings were found in a warehouse in Lincolnshire.

The plants were discovered in Tattershall with several large bags of cropped cannabis, hydroponics, lighting rigs and ventilation systems.

Lincolnshire Police said it was "an industrial-scale operation".

The man was arrested on suspicion of cultivating a Class B drug and has been released on police bail until June.

The cannabis plants, and equipment for growing them, will be destroyed, police said.
