The PSNI also rescued nine dogs, three ferrets and goat. Police say the animals were all in ill health.

Constable Gemma Gregg said: “During the search we discovered a number of animals who appeared to be in a poor state of health. A local vet was contacted and the animals, including nine ogs, were assessed and transferred into the care of a local animal sanctuary.

"We are delighted to have been able to shut down this cannabis factory and prevent these drugs from being sold in our communities. We are also very pleased to have helped the animals and to ensure they now receive the care they need."
