When police officers were called to investigate ‘a few cannabis plants’ in a wealthy south London suburb they could not have imagined what they would find a full cannabis forest.
It turns out there was a ‘cannabis forest’ of around 150 cannabis plants in the scrubland of Kingston-upon-Thames, right around Lower Marsh Lane.

Officers said it’s the size of a football field, with plants nearly five-foot-tall.
Kingston Pc Sarah Henderson told the Evening Standard: “The area these plants were growing on was the size of a football pitch, it looked like a small cannabis forest of Christmas trees and was complete with a tent gazebo.
“Whoever set this up used a really remote spot – the only way to get there was a 20 minute walk through wasteland… But all their time, trouble and gardening skills will go unrewarded, as the whole lot will now be destroyed by police.”
