The British National Crime Agency say the “sophisticated” operation is one of the largest cannabis grows they have ever discovered.

Sophisticated planting, growing and irrigation equipment, valued at around £150,000, was also discovered by officers.

Three men have been arrested and charged with production of a class B drug. Two of the suspects were detained with the assistance of the West Midlands Police drone unit as they attempted to flee the building.

Adam Warnock, NCA branch commander, said: “This is a significant drug seizure which will have a huge impact on the organised crime groups involved, depriving them of commodity and profit.

“The size of the cannabis factory was significant and sophisticated, spread across three floors of a large building. It is certainly one of the largest grows ever uncovered by the NCA.
