A sophisticated cannabis factory has been discovered during a raid at an address in Glastonbury Road, Corby.

Northamptonshire police say the raid was part of 'Operation Viper' which targets organised crime groups in the area.

The warrant was carried out after intelligence from the local community.

Around 90 mature plants were found along with hydroponics and a canister of CS spray.

“We are keen to highlight that this has come about through community intelligence, something which is vital to Operation Viper. The information provided has enabled us to execute a successful warrant and develop our investigations into the supply of drugs within Northamptonshire. We are eager to build on relationships with the local community and we hope that results like this demonstrate our commitment to acting on information provided by the public.”
