'Forest' of cannabis plants discovered on Surrey wasteland 'looked like Christmas trees'
A "small forest" cannabis farm has been discovered growing on wasteland.
Over 150 plants, some over 5ft tall, was found in Kingston in Surrey today by a member of the public.
Police were called in and response officers reported the substantial growing farm.
"The area these plants were growing on was the size of a football pitch, it looked like a small forest of Christmas trees and was complete with a gazebo," said Pc Sarah Henderson, of Kingston borough.
"Whoever set this up used a really remote spot; the only way to get there was a 20 minute walk through wasteland. But all their time, trouble and gardening skills will go unrewarded, as the whole lot will now be destroyed by police."
