Officers from Leicestershire Police were sitting in a car waiting to arrest a suspect, when one of the three, a fan of a 'high protein diet', forced the other officers to wind down the car windows.

The officers subsequently smelt what they thought was cannabis, and after teasing their windy colleague about what exactly he had been eating, they realised the smell was in fact outside the car.

200 metres down the road they discovered a cannabis factory with a crop worth £12,000. Seven people were arrested, leading to a further discovery from another house nearby.
