Bailiffs were called this morning to reclaim the premises after the landlord failed to receive rental payments.

Bailiff, Jim Dorman, said: “We came to the front door this morning and could not get in so we went round the back.

“When we went in I noticed the smell and then saw the plants. There must be over 100.”

The police have been informed and are investigating the incident.
