Officers swooped on the property at Tydd St Giles, near Wisbech, yesterday.

Fenland police said on social media: “A 58-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of producing cannabis after we found more than 100 plants growing, as well as a suspected stolen caravan and a large amount of harvested cannabis.”

Plants were being grown in large polytunnels. The raid did not come as a surprise to one villager.
