Detective Inspector David Jarvis of Crewe CID Unit said, said: "This is a fantastic result which has enabled us to remove a significant quantity of cannabis from the streets of Crewe and further afield.

"The factory had been converted into a sophisticated cannabis farm, with specialist lighting and ventilation systems to maximise the amount of class B drugs being cultivated.

"In total we believe that the building contained well over 2,000 cannabis plants at various stages of growth, which will all now be destroyed.

"While no arrests have been made at this time, it is clear that a number of people had been living in the premises and as part of our investigation we're keen to hear from any local residents who believe they may have seen anything suspicious.
