Police found yet another cannabis factory in the north of the county today (Monday) after a raid in Wellingborough.

The drug farm - with 110 plants - was found during the early morning warrant in Rock Street.

A 22-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of being involved in the production of cannabis.

The find is the latest in a series of grow-houses discovered and dismantled in the north of the county.

On Friday hundreds of plants were found across six rooms in a terraced house in Rushden's Pratt Road, which was one police team's fifth haul in just two weeks.

Two days before that their colleagues smashed another drug farm in a luxury detached house in Great Oakley.

Elsewhere in the north of the county in the past 12 months an industrial-scale cannabis farm was found in Corby before a grow-house over five rooms was uncovered in Higham Ferrers.

The biggest of them all was found in Kettering when police raided the town's former Gala Bingo hall in June last year.

They found more than 2,000 plants - with the potential to yield drugs worth £2.8m over a year.
