Around 200 suspected cannabis plants have been seized from a property in Weston.

Officers obtained a warrant to search a property in Verbena Way in Mead Vale last night (Monday) and arrested a man on suspicion of being concerned in the production of cannabis.

The plants and growing equipment are being removed today (Tuesday) by Avon and Somerset Constabulary.

Officers also called in a utility firm to make the property safe due to concerns the electricity supply had been tampered with as there have been a number of fires in Avon and Somerset as result of growing cannabis.

Anyone with information about drug crime in their neighbourhood should call 101, report it online by logging on to www.avonandsomerset.police.uk or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
