Police raid cannabis factory in Canterbury Road, Ashford

Police have seized dozens of cannabis plants after a raid on a house being used as a suspected cannabis factory.

Officers were called to the property in Canterbury Road in the Kennington area of Ashford in the early hours of Friday, August 11.

They found 78 plants growing, and it is believed the owners had tapped into the electricity supply illegally as electrics had been tampered with.
