Cannabis factory raided in Potters Bar

A CANNABIS factory was raided by police in Potters Bar yesterday morning (Wednesday).

Acting on a tip-off from an electrical company, officers discovered more than 200 plants at a business unit in Wyllyotts Place, at the rear of The Broadway shops at 11am.

Police are appealing for witnesses after men working for an electrical company spotted a man fleeing the property.

A specialist company was called in to remove and destroy the plants.

• Anyone with information about the cannabis factory, or who spotted suspicious behaviour, should contact Herts Police on 0845 3300222.
