A large cannabis factory with more than 1,000 plants has been discovered in Corby.

The plants were found at a premises in the Willowbrook Industrial Estate. Corby Inspector Carl Sturman said: "This is a significant find that will disrupt the supply of drugs, not just locally but across the region.

“These plants were almost ready for harvesting and would have produced drugs with a street value of around £450,000."
