Police have discovered and dismantled a dangerous cannabis factory in Hatfield.

Around 100 cannabis plants were found in a house in Bramble Road yesterday (Thursday 20 May) 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. I am very pleased with this result and I hope the local community also share my relief in these drugs being off our streets.

“Thorough enquiries are now being carried out and I urge anyone with information to get in touch. Have you seen suspicious activity in the Bramble Road area? If you can help, please don’t hesitate to contact us.”
