Police were alerted when a member of the public discovered a forest of cannabis plants on an area of wasteland in Kingston, South West London
Officers found more than 150 plants, some over 5 feet tall, growing near Lower Marsh Lane on disused land “the size of a football pitch”
Describing the scene, PC Sarah Henderson said
“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.

There have been no arrests and enquires continue, to find those responsible for cultivating the plants
“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.” the police said
