A LARGE quantity of cannabis was seized earlier today during a police raid a property in a Fenland village.
The cannabis production facility was discovered at a private residence in Terrington St Clement when a drugs warrant was carried out by the local Safer Neighbourhood Team.

"Information about criminal activity in our neighbourhoods will be acted on by the Safer Neighbourhood Team and enforcement action, such as this, taken where needed."
He said local communities have a big impact on helping police to detect drug related crime.
"Telltale signs for residents of cannabis factories being run from properties in their neighbourhood can include the windows of a property being permanently covered with lots of condensation, gardening equipment left outside or a pungent smell emanating from inside," said Insp Durham.
