A cannabis factory worth an estimated £45,000 has been dismantled by police after it was discovered in a house in Hatfield on Thursday.
Around 100 cannabis plants were found in a house in Bramble Road, and all the electricity had been bypassed.
With an estimated street value of £45,000, the plants have now been seized and an investigation is underway.
Welwyn Hatfield Chief Inspector Simon Mason said: “We take a zero-tolerance approach to drug dealing of any kind in Welwyn Hatfield.
“Cannabis factories are often linked to the exploitation of society’s most vulnerable and they can pose a fire risk to neighbouring properties.
