They left the roadside strewn with bags
An off-duty police dog handler got more than he bargained for when he came across this fly-tipped rubbish down a country lane.
Inside the black bags were the contents of an abandoned cannabis factory.
The officer was exercising their police dog when they found the haul in Kirby Lane, which runs from behind Rockingham Motor Speedway to Deene.
